Abstract

Forests and the goods and services they provide are influenced by both the biophysical and human environments. To fully understand forest ecosystems, we need to understand the social context in which forests exist because landowners determine land use and management practice. To influence decisions related to the forests, we need to understand the spatial distribution of forest ownership.
