Title: Creating a Knowledge Base for Management of Southern Bottomland Hardwood Ecosystems

Author: Bliss, John C.; Jones, Stephen B.; Stanturf, John A.; Burke, Marianne K.; Hamner, Christine M.;

Date: 1997

Source: Published in USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station, General Technical Report SRS-017

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: We describe an interdisciplinary approach to forecasting potential impacts of even-aged and uneven-aged silvicultural treatments upon bottomland hardwood ecosystems in the Southern United States. Our approach involves identifying scientists with expertise in key disciplines: utilizing the Delphi technique to develop consensus among these scientists on important system processes and functions. and to estimate mean values for management effects on same; and synthesizing results in conceptual models of key ecological. physical. and social relationships. These models will provide conceptual support for long term field research on management of these ecosystems underway at four sites in the South.

Keywords: ecosystem management, adaptive management, bottomland hardwoods, Delphi, silviculture
