    Description

    The final webinar in the Future Forest Webinar Series provided an example of how managers utilized available science to address questions about post-epidemic forest conditions. Assessments of current conditions and projected trends, and how these compare with historical patterns, provide important information for land management planning. Large-scale disturbance events, such as the MPB epidemic, can change future vegetation conditions, disturbances and disturbance interactions, and habitat for wildlife species. This case study from the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest illustrates the value of rapid assessments for conservation planning, and it provides a template for future science-management collaboration.
