    Description

    In 1989, the Missouri Department of Conservation initiated a research project to examine the impacts of forest management practices on multiple ecosystem components. The Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP) is a landscape experiment comparing the impacts of even-aged management, uneven-aged management, and no harvesting on a wide array of ecosystem attributes. These three harvest treatments were replicated in three complete blocks on a total of nine sites in the southeast Missouri Ozarks. Each study site is approximately 1,000 acres (400 ha) in extent. More than 50 scientists are participating in this coordinated ecosystem research project.
