DescriptionThe current status and trend of aspen is a topic of debate; some studies have claimed dramatic reductions in aspen stands while others have found no major changes. The actual picture of aspen forests across the West is variable, and the presence of conifers and ungulates in aspen may or may not indicate a progressive loss of aspen. These proceedings summarize the state of knowledge about aspen ecology, the condition and trends in aspen ecosystems in the West, and human dimensions and management options for sustaining aspen.
