Description: Long-term research is critical to our understanding of forest dynamics. Observations made over decades or centuries provide valuable insight into the effects of natural and anthropogenic disturbances, and allow scientists and forest managers to determine which management regimes succeed and which ones fail in terms of desired objectives. Unfortunately, many long-term studies are abandoned before the full benefits of the research can be realized. When long-term projects end, it is often because values change and the research is considered less relevant (Innes 2004). Yet many old studies could inform contemporary forest management and policy, especially if combined with new research.
