Abstract

In December 1997, the Secretary of Agriculture, Dan Glickman, convened an interdisciplinary Committee of 13 Scientists to review and evaluate the Forest Service's land and resource management planning process. The Committee was asked to: Recommend how to best accomplish sound resource planning within the established framework of environmental laws and within the statutory mission of Forest Service. Provide technical advice on the land and resource management planning and provide material for the Forest Service to consider in revising planning regulations. Recommend improvements in Forest Service coordination with other federal land management or resource protection agencies, state and local government agencies, and tribal governments. Suggest a planning framework under current law and policy that could last a generation.
