Systematic Approach to Multiple-Use Management
Abstract:A computerized system is available to help make decisions about multiple-use management. On a forest, production of individual benefits, such as turkey habitat, is mathematically related to rotation lengths and sizes of openings for reproduction. From these equations, which are independent of one another, the benefits that will accrue from a management alternative are computed and displayed. A manager can therefore base his decisions upon benefit production. Once a combination of benefits is chosen, the system indicates the rates of timber harvest and the sizes of openings required to produce that combination.
