Blacks Mountain, California: Interdisciplinary Field Research in Ponderosa Pine
Abstract:At an experimental forest in northeastern California, a team of scientists is studying the effects of forest structure, prescribed fire, and cattle grazing on plant and animal communities. Although silviculturists, because of the integrative nature of their field, took the lead in organizing this project, specialists in nearly a dozen disciplines participated in its design. The treatments chosen will provide extreme contrast and thus clear indicators. Implementation is under way, but interim success is defined by the cross-disciplinary work of team members.
