    Description

    Many national forests and grasslands in the Central Hardwoods region of the United States recently have undergone Land Management Plan revision, which include management areas that promote restoration through a variety of management activities. Monitoring is a vital component of adaptive management whereby the effects from a variety of treatments (including controls) can be analyzed and compared all within a landscape context. A statistically sound and cost-effective opportunity is presented through a unified monitoring effort for national forests spanning the Central Hardwoods region. Statistical power will be gained by increased replications across the landscape and cumulative effects will be addressed more comprehensively. Sharing a common protocol for monitoring activities and a reporting system will enable collective analysis and inference. Challenges will undoubtedly arise in forming a unified monitoring system across multiple forests. The objectives of each forest's management areas and the measures of restoration success need to be similar and reconcilable among the forests. The process of developing and implementing a unified monitoring system must be mutually accepted and financially supported by participating Districts, Forests, Regions, and Research Stations.
