Description

The adaptive management of forests and rangelands is directed toward achieving an ecologically sustainable landscape that contributes to social and economic sustainability. This “socioecological resilience” is a significant focus of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service 2012 Planning Rule directing how national forests are to revise their forest plans, as introduced in Chapter 1.1 (Dumroese, this synthesis, The Northeastern California Plateaus Bioregion Science Synthesis: Background, Rationale, and Scope). This process is complicated not only by ecological disturbances discussed throughout this Northeastern California Plateaus Bioregion Science Synthesis, but also by stressors of demographic, economic, and social change at a variety of scales.
