August 2016 - Sound Science

Managing forests in the face of climate change, spread of invasive species, catastrophic wildfires, and destructive storms requires resource managers to have a wide array of tools in their toolbox, including a sound scientific basis for their decisions and actions.   Employing top notch scientists, using the most cutting-edge technologies—from Smart Forests to gene sequencing—and creating innovative ways to share information on forests with a broader audience, Forest Service Research and Development is stepping up in support of sustaining the Nation’s forests and grasslands on people’s behalf. This month we feature a scientist, a product, research, and a partnership all related to sound science.
