as core components. The NetWeaver component performs logic-based evaluation of environmental data, and logically synthesizes evaluations to infer the state of landscape features such as watersheds (e.g., watershed condition). The DecisionPlus component prioritizes landscape features with respect to user-defined management objectives (e.g., watershed restoration), using summarized outputs from NetWeaver as well as additional logistical information considered important to the decision maker(s). See the #Applications section below for a current list of published papers by application area. EMDS was originally developed by the ...

Myths and Facts
Most Americans do not realize that their National Forests are logged. When they find out, they want it stopped. (USFS, �Forest Service Values Poll Questions, Results and Analysis,� Bruce Hammond, 1994.) Although there are laws intended to protect the forest from environmental damage, they are routinely ignored. In a 1991 legal opinion regarding the northern spotted owl case, Federal Judge William Dwyer described federal land management agencies actions as a �systematic and deliberate refusal to comply with the nation�s environmental laws.� (Seattle Audubon Society v.

SRS - Forest ecosystem restoration and management
The restoration of our Southern forest ecosystems has become increasingly important to ensure future water quality, wildlife habitat, and other ecosystem services provided by forests. Forest Ecosystem Restoration and Management provides landowners and managers with knowledge and tools to help restore, enhance, and manage forests in a changing environment. In a recent study in western North Carolina, Southern Research Station scientists investigated the importance of riparian zones to bats and salamanders and tested the effects of riparian zone width on these important groups, which were chosen for study due to their prominent ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Forest Ecosystem Management
To manage ecosystems effectively, we must have a working knowledge of biological, physical, social and management sciences.  We must understand not only the component parts of ecosystems, but also the processes that allow ecosystems to function, as well as those that drive them to change.  Managing ecosystems requires that we understand relationships between the components and their relationships to the whole.   This course is intended to introduce students to major concepts and terminology related to forest ecosystems and their management. Class discussions will focus on ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How does the forest Ecosystem work? - Yahoo! Answers
Biomass productivity is one of the most apparent and economically important ecosystem functions. Biomass accumulation begins at the cellular level via photosynthesis. Photosynthesis requires water and consequently, global patters of annual biomass production are correlated with annual precipitation (Huxman et al. 2004). Amounts of productivity are also dependent on the overall capacity of plants to capture sunlight which is directly correlated with plant leaf area and leaf N content. Net primary productivity (NPP) is the primary measure of biomass accumulation within an ecosystem. Net primary productivity can be calculated by a ...
