Title: The owl: spotted, listed, barred, or gone?

Author: Duncan, Sally.;

Date: 1998

Source: Science Findings. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. April (3): 1-5

Publication Series: Science Findings

Description: The information we bring to the table is usually complex. The April issue of Science Findings illustrates this complexity. Scientific inquiry about an individual species and its habitat requires modeling, assumptions, and time. Uncertainty remains after studies are done. Once policy is made, implementation continues to build new understanding, which may present implications not considered in the original policy.

Hindsight vision is 20/20 because all the facts are in. Scientific data can not offer 20/20 vision of the future. But despite its imperfections, it offers a powerful look at what might happen in the future because of decisions we make today.
