Pine Integrated Network: Education, Mitigation, and Adaptation project (PINEMAP)

PINEMAP integrates research, extension, and education to enable southern pine landowners to manage forests to increase carbon sequestration; increase efficiency of nitrogen and other fertilizer inputs; and adapt forest management approaches to increase forest resilience and sustainability under variable climates.

Good news for native trout?

Body
This will give managers an effective tool to help prioritize locations for native brook trout survival.

By Sarah Farmer

It's not always the case that the "further research" scientists call for in their journal articles brings good news, but sometimes collecting more detailed data yields the unexpected. Results from collaborative research by the US Forest Service and the US Geological Survey may not only bring a sigh of relief to native trout lovers but also provide a precise planning tool for land managers in the Appalachian region faced with rising temperatures from climate change.

Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO)

Overview & Applicability

TACCIMO is a web-based information delivery tool that connects climate change science with forest management and planning needs. Science content in TACCIMO consists of quotations from peer-reviewed climate change literature and geospatial projections of future climate and resulting changes in ecosystems. USFS forest plan components are included to connect science with planning language.
