    Description

    The Emory oak woodlands in the southwestern United States present a diverse range of resources. People utilize these woodlands for wood products, cattle grazing, and recreational purposes. The woodlands provide a diversity of wildlife habitats for resident and migratory species. Occupying predominantly upland regions, the oak woodlands protect watersheds from excessive soil erosion. Managing entities are increasingly moving towards an ecosystem approach to holistically manage the oak woodlands as a sustainable resource. However, to move towards an effective ecosystem based management system requires an understanding of the ecological and hydrological processes in these oak woodlands. This paper draws on the results of prior studies that focused on four resource components found in the Emory oak woodlands. This information, collectively, was used to develop a decision support system to provide a basis for managing entities to optimize wood, water, forage, and wildlife objectives.
