Title: Broad-scale consequences of land management: Columbia basin example.

Author: Haynes, Richard W.; Quigley, Thomas M.;

Date: 2001

Source: Forest Ecology and Management. 153: 179-188

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Integrating management actions to consistently achieve broad ecological and socioeconomic goals is a challenge largely unmet. The presumed or real conflict between these goals establishes a forum for debate. Broad measures are needed to describe tradeoffs, trends in conditions under varying management scenarios, and a transparent science underpinning. The Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project in the northwestern United States provides a useful example where scientists, managers, and the public have explored these issues in depth. From a science perspective we conclude that a successful strategy for broad-scale land management will need the ability to do the following: maintain long-term sustainability of resources and ecosystems; maintain socioeconomic resiliency; continually assess results of management activities; manage risks and opportunities through consistent approaches at multiple scales; expand our knowledge base; and adaptively manage for new knowledge and assessments of resource conditions/capabilities.

Keywords: land management, Columbia basin, tradeoffs, resource conditions
