Description: Maintaining a proper balance between fundamental and applied research is only one of the important considerations that must be adhered to in the management of Forest Service research. A critical mass of scientists with the necessary professional and technical staff is needed over the long haul for difficult research problems. The project leader must know how he or she intends to reach the user with research products. A conceptual flow of information from problem delineation through basic research to development of models and systems and, finally, testing and transfer to operational units has been shown to be an effective means of getting research into application. Each member of the work unit must understand the role they are playing at any time during the process. Finally, the scientists and project leader must be constantly aware of the hidden manager--the research grade evaluation panel, and make certain that scientists do not become isolated in developmental and applications work without sufficient publications to maintain grade.
