    Description

    Since early 1900s forestry, ecology and related professions have been aware that external disturbances had important effects on the development of vegetation. However, the integral part they play in ecosystem development and sustainability across time and space was largely underappreciated. Failure to provide appropriate disturbances can place stable and productive species and ecosystems at great risk. Seral western white pine and ponderosa pine are prime examples. Solutions to several critical problems are available and must be more widely implemented, with the support of all parties…soon. It is already too late to prevent significant losses.
