    Description

    The USDA Forest Service implemented a more holistic form of ecosystem management than previously practiced in the early 1990s through several ecosystem programs implemented in the Western United States. The ecosystem program that concerns this conference was a collaboration on “Achieving Ecosystem Management in the Borderlands of the Southwestern United States through Research and Management Partnerships” among researchers, managers, conservationists, and local landowners. Concurrent with initiation of this program was the first conference on “Sky Islands of the Madrean Archipelago,” which brought together stakeholders and other interested parties from government agencies, universities, and private organizations. This paper describes the evolution of this ecosystem management program from a historical perspective and discusses some of the resulting activities.
