    Description

    The Blue Mountains Natural Resources Institute approaches issues by deciding if a critical issue is one of information needs or of differing values. If a values issue, we arrange local forums for discussion; if an information issue, we disseminate available information, or undertake research projects as appropriate. One issue we have researched involving both values and information needs is fuel reduction. Through an adaptive management cycle of treatment, evaluation, and refinement, we have brought new understanding to management options for fuel treatment efforts and the ecological and economic results. A survey on acceptance of fuel reduction methods allowed integration of social, ecological, and economic factors, an essential feature of ecosystem management.
