DescriptionThis volume is a synthesis of a long-term interdisciplinary study of watershed ecosystem responses to a forest-management disturbance. Specifically, a commercial clearcut cable logging experiment was initiated on Watershed 7 (WS 7) at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in 1975 to elucidate ecosystem structure and function by testing hypotheses associated with the hydrologic, biogeochemical, and ecological processes of mixed deciduous forests. Practical forest-management objectives were also integral to the research.
