DescriptionWe describe an interdisciplinary approach to forecasting potential impacts of even-aged and uneven-aged silvicultural treatments upon bottomland hardwood ecosystems in the Southern United States. Our approach involves identifying scientists with expertise in key disciplines: utilizing the Delphi technique to develop consensus among these scientists on important system processes and functions. and to estimate mean values for management effects on same; and synthesizing results in conceptual models of key ecological. physical. and social relationships. These models will provide conceptual support for long term field research on management of these ecosystems underway at four sites in the South.
