Description: How should old-growth forests be managed? Should they be managed? Stakeholders with differing values and agendas have debated these questions for years. Over time, the debate has evolved: now there is greater awareness about the complexity of old-growth ecosystems and different ways humans value them. A scientist at the Pacific Northwest Research Station has co-edited a book to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview and synthesis to further this discussion. Written for a lay audience, Old Growth in a New World: A Pacific Northwest Icon Reexamined is meant to help deepen policymakers' and public understanding of old growth.
