DescriptionIn mid-2001, the Southern Research Station (SRS) and the Southern Regional Office (R8) of the U.S. Forest Service worked through a 3-day facilitated discussion to develop a strategy to guide research and technology transfer on non-timber forest products (NTFPs). In all, more than 14 specialists took part in developing the strategy, representing the Forest Service Washington and Region 8 Offices, the National Forests, Research, and State & Private Forestry. Technical disciplines represented during the process included ecology, botany, social science, inventory and monitoring, and marketing and management. The guide establishes strategic goals and recommended actions to advance the knowledge concerning the management of forest resources for NTFPs. It is intended to help direct research efforts of the Southern Research Station concerning the ecological, economic, and social sustainability of market and non-market NTFPs, as well as tlie inventory and monitoring of these products on public and private forestlands. A corresponding purpose is to guide technology transfer efforts in Region 8, state and private forestry, as well as the national forest system with SRS scientists.
