DescriptionSometimes a name says it all, and sometimes a name is just a name. Joe's Income Tax and Bookkeeping Service probably does just what it says. On the other hand, there's AT&T. Until 2005, the initials stood for American Telephone & Telegraph, but in the last couple of decades when you saw "AT&T," you didn't think of the telegraph. You thought about other services and products - cell phones, fiber optics, and wireless internet.
The Bitterroot Ecosystem Management Research Project is kind of like AT&T in that research we conduct reflects more than our name implies. The executive committee has Bitterroot National Forest representatives, but our decisions on what research to conduct follow our mission statement: "Strengthen the scientific theory and practice of managing Rocky Mountain ecosystems." This applies not only to the Forest Service, but also to the public and other resource managers.
