The 'Management Focus' Journey
Opportunities to EBM
Success in achieving EBM relies on managing disturbances, ecological conditions, and biological consequences. This is especially important where disturbance processes are substituted for one another (e.g., harvest replaces fire) or applied narrowly (e.g., merchantable vs. flammable forest). While managing for natural ecological patterns, it is important to focus on outcomes; a challenge given that outcomes may be inexact or arrive decades in the future.
The EBM Journey
The journey is the process of supporting and sharing knowledge that will allow us to shift current forestry management towards EBM
