Publication Series: Proceedings (P)

Description: The general objective of this Symposium was to build on the best science and technology available to assure that the data and information produced in future inventory and monitoring programs are comparable, quality assured, available, and adequate for their intended purposes, thereby providing a reliable framework for characterization, assessment, and management of forest ecosystems in North America. Central to the syntheses delivered in this Symposium was the conclusion that a fundamental improvement in the approaches used for inventorying and monitoring ecosystem resources is required to meet current and future environmental uncertainties. Specific actions were proposed to address these challenges. These strategic actions are described in the last chapter of these proceedings.
