    Description

    This paper tracks the recent history of planning, management, and litigation regarding northern spotted owls and their habitat on Federal public lands since the 1989 Interagency Scientific Committee to Address the Conservation of the Northern Spotted Owl (ISC). The ISC report and subsequent plans sparked many economic analyses, appeals, lawsuits, forest management plans, and counterplans. Federal assessments and planning efforts eventually led to the current Northwest Forest Plan which considers owls in the context of ecological and human communities under the rubric of ecosystem management.
