Description

Stephen Yaffee discusses internal discussions in the U.S. Forest Service at the time of ecosystem management’s implementation. He explains the “scientific base” for the decision and how that scientific knowledge was managed. He alludes to the difficulties of moving policy through the hierarchy of the Forest Service, shifting in this way into some history of the agency. He mentions key legislation including NEMA, NFMA (National Forest Management Act of 1976), and FORPLAN (FORest PLANning).
