Description: The Hardwood Ecosystem Experiment (HEE) is a long-term, landscape-level field experiment initiated in 2006 by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources-Division of Forestry. The HEE is a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research project involving researchers from Purdue University, Indiana State University, Ball State University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Drake University. It is designed to study the ecological and social impacts of forest management through a replicated series of study areas established across 730 hectares in two Indiana State Forests. Each of the nine study areas is approximately 80 ha in size. Over the next 100 years, the impacts of even-aged management, uneven-aged management, and no timber harvesting (control) will be assessed. Across these areas, long-term responses to forest management of various plant and animal taxa, including threatened and endangered species, will be monitored. Pre-treatment data collection began in 2006. Treatments were applied beginning in the summer of 2008.
