Description: Abstract - Recent thinking in natural resource management has led federal land management agencies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service (Forest Service) to adopt ecosystem management as its official land management policy. A pivotal aspect of ecosystem management is interdisciplinary analysis of complex land management problems. Interdisciplinary watershed analysis attempts to engage in this approach and is intended to synthesize biological, physical, and socio-economic data in 20- to 200-square-mile watersheds in the Pacific Northwest. Watershed analysis is carried out by teams of natural resource specialists from different disciplines.
