DescriptionForest managers and resource scientists and specialists are engaged in a partnership to sustain the natural resource value of our national forests. Managers are faced with deciding which activities provide the best resource benefits with the least resource damage. Many, but not all, aspects of the decision process must be based on the science supporting our current understanding of natural resources. Scientists are charged with continuing to build these understandings and interpreting their effects in an applications setting. The roles of land managers, subject matter experts (field soil scientists), and research soil scientists are distinctly different. Each brings unique skills to the resource management problem. Together they form a powerful team that can sustain forest and rangeland ecosystems and enhance resource values.
