    Description

    Based on ten years of Northwest Forest Plan implementation, we focus on key scientifically-oriented questions relating to improving Plan monitoring. The questions, which fall into groups concerning issues of scale, integration, and efficiency, have applicability to monitoring programs being designed and implemented throughout the world. Progress toward answering such questions is evidence of a functioning adaptive management paradigm, specifically an important subcomponent of such an approach dealing with adaptive change within monitoring programs themselves.
