  To examine ownership and protection status of forests with high-biomass stores (> Mg/ha) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) region of the United States, we used the latest versions of publicly available datasets. Overlay, aggregation, and GIS-based computation of forest area in broad biomass classes in the PNW showed that the National Forests contained Cited by: 7. Progress 10/01/05 to 09/30/06 Outputs Our work with the Regional Interagency Executive Committee for the Northwest Forest Plan area has resulted in the identification of key questions to be answered and new approaches to adaptive management and monitoring, including the development of management experiment templates. This effort will help guide.

  Adaptive monitoring design is an iterative process that refines the specifications for monitoring over time as a result of experience in implementing a monitoring program, assessing results, and interacting with users. An adaptive design therefore facilitates ecosystem management. We also discuss lessons of temporal and spatial scales raised by the Cited by: (Forest Ecosystem Management Assessment Team , Thomas et al. ). Knowledge from recent ecological studies of natural and managed systems has helped to assess and redesign forest management policies in the Pacific Northwest (Franklin et al. , Harris , Spies et al. , Spies and Franklin , Swanson and Franklin ).

The continuous fragmentation of this valuable forest type is accelerating declines in a multitude of species, including the northern spotted owl, a bird so dependent on old-growth that it spawned a new forest management system, the Northwest Forest Plan, to protect its precious habitat.

High Alpine Ecosystems. Inthe comprehensive Northwest Forest Plan ('the Plan') was initiated to end the impasse over management of federal forest land in the Pacific Northwest within the range of the northern spotted owl. The Plan Record of Decision and Standards and Guidelines used an innovative approach based on ecosystem and watershed management.

The Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) is a series of federal policies and guidelines governing land use on federal lands in the Pacific Northwest region of the United covers 10 million hectares within Western Oregon and Washington as well as a small part of Northern California.

This plan, which was a set of standards and guidelines, was implemented across 26 forests in the Pacific Northwest by the Forest Service and BLM.

Critical to the plan was its focus on a comprehensive ecosystem management strategy. Of the more than 24 million acres subject to the plan, 30% were dedicated to late-successional reserves protected. This is the report of the Forest Ecosystem Management Assessment Team (FEMAT).

Appropriate levels of management must incorporate a well-designed and properly managed system of protected reserves. Experience with the multiyear process leading to adoption of the Northwest Forest Plan also suggests the need to address ways to reduce conflicts over forest management issues.
