Description: During 5 years of research (1994-98) in support of the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP), Pacific Northwest Research Station scientists and their collaborators have made significant progress in both validating some of the NWFP’s major assumptions and providing research that sets the stage for further evolution of the plan. Studies have provided new information in the areas of wildlife conservation and population viability, aquatic conservation measures, adaptive management, the socioeconomic dimension, ecological processes and functions, landscape-scale issues, and stand-development strategies. A key theme in the findings is the need for NWFP implementation and research efforts to increasingly address the significant ecological variation throughout the region, the dynamic nature of our forest ecosystems, the need to integrate information across science disciplines, and the benefits of managing adaptively.

Keywords: Northwest Forest Plan, ecosystem management, conservation, land management, alternative silviculture, landscape ecology, adaptive management
