Overview

This assessment is intended to help those who wish to learn more about the issues, questions, and approaches facing forest managers in the northern Oregon Coast Range, and to provide a review of past research and where it has led us. The intended audience is researchers, forest managers, resource specialists, and interested citizens. While it is assumed that most people reading this have some familiarity with federal forestry issues and approaches in the Pacific Northwest in the 1990's, I have tried to keep jargon to a minimum, and have provided a glossary for some key concepts. This assessment is by no means an exhaustive synthesis and compilation of past and existing research in the Coast Range--rather it is focused on the issues and questions facing managers and scientists of the Northern Coast Range Adaptive Management Area. I hope the pages that follow stimulate further ideas and discussions about the future of public forest-lands in this area.
