NORTHWEST FOREST PLAN SCIENCE SYNTHESIS 

NORTHWEST FOREST PLAN SCIENCE SYNTHESIS
SCIENCE FORUM | JUNE 26, 2018

The U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest and Pacific Southwest Research Stations developed the Synthesis of Science to Inform Land Management within the Northwest Forest Plan area, which is now available electronically. Written by scientists from the Forest Service, other federal agencies, universities, and tribes, the synthesis is a comprehensive review of the science that has emerged since the plan was enacted in 1994 and will help to provide a science foundation for forest plan revisions for 17 national forests within the 24-million-acre NWFP area in western Washington, western Oregon, and northern California.

 

News Release:
Northwest Forest Plan science synthesis released, June 11, 2018

 

An electronic copy of the final science synthesis is available online at: https://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/publications/gtr966/. The Ecological Society of America coordinated and conducted the peer review process and provided a peer review comment summary to the authors. Scientists then prepared a response to the peer review comments. Hardcopies of the report and its executive summary will be available later this summer.
   
The research stations hosted a science forum on Tuesday, June 26 in Portland, Oregon, to provide an overview of the key findings of the science synthesis. The forum presentations and transcript can be found below.
