Description: The adaptive environmental assessment method was used by an interdisciplinary team of forest specialists to gain an understanding of resource interactions and tradeoffs resulting from forest management activities in southeast Alaska. A forest multiresource projection model was developed in the process. The multiresource model, “SAMM,” is capable of characterizing and displaying interactions of four major resources over a 150-year rotation: timber, wildlife (Sitka black-tailed deer), hydrology (streams), and fisheries (anadromous). SAMM is in a prototype stage of development; final testing is required before it can be used by managers for quantitative analysis. Sufficient development and evaluation has been done by the team of specialists to permit its use in qualitative assessments for planning.

Keywords: Multiresource, forest management, systems, models, southeast Alaska, simulation
