Moving Forward: How to best implement these ideas?

John Lehmkuhl

Research Wildlife Biologist

Wenatchee Forestry Sciences Lab

the workshop has attempted to
The workshop has attempted to…
  • Understand the issues & objectives.
  • Learn from our past and current efforts
  • Focus our diffuse current individual efforts into a logical and defendable framework.
  • Answer the question: "If we manage stands, then how to do it for multiple ecological and social benefits?"
we have a lot to work with we are not data free
We have a lot to work with – we are not data free:
  • How stands have changed from human activity and the implications
  • Knowledge of plant and animal response to current treatments
  • A rich literature on natural history & responses to similar older practices & other areas
  • Practical experience doing such treatment during the last 10+ years.
what is uncertain current science may not be enough
What is uncertain? Current science may not be enough…
  • Gaps in knowledge geographically
  • Short recent time span for projects, i.e. long-term effects
  • Local variability
  • Climate change – what works now may not work well in 20 years
  • Social values and expectations
business as usual
Business as usual?
  • Current decentralized & diffuse grass roots efforts
    • Allows creativity and adaptability to local situations
    • Diffuse effort = diffuse knowledge
      • slow progress
      • repeating the same mistakes
      • litigating the same issues
embrace a new management model
Embrace a new management model?
  • Management study network
    • Address the same ecological & litigation issues
    • Create focused knowledge
    • Fast progress
    • Challenges:
      • design template
      • monitoring template
      • coordination
      • resources, monitoring especially

Valid

assumptions?

yes

no

several ways we can approach it
Several ways we can approach it:
  • Management studies templates for local adoption and monitoring: mostly managers implementing preferred actions
  • Above, with managers implementing alternatives
  • Above, with coordinated monitoring with research scientists of a few locations
ideally most will have elements of reliable design
Ideally, most will have elements of reliable design:
  • replication
  • controls
  • alternative prescriptions to address uncertainty and learn fast
  • monitoring at low to high levels depending on questions and resources.
organization
Organization
  • ad hoc
  • PNW Consortium for Fire Science Delivery
  • Dry Forest Landscape Working Group under the US Fish & Wildlife Service & the NSO Recovery Plan
what we need
What we need?
  • your interest (high based on workshop attendance)
  • willingness to take risks to try something different
  • support & incentives from the top
  • support & incentives from the public (negative already there?)
  • resources for monitoring

Are you interested in implementing workshop recommendations in your next project?Do you want to participate in a management study network?
