Inventorying Alaska’s Forests: An Opportunity for Integrating Interagency Needs with the FIA

February 2014

A 2-day workshop was held in February 2014 in Anchorage to explore how interagency needs could be met by the FIA as an incentive to collaborate on a comprehensive biological inventory of Alaska’s forests. Options for incorporating interagency needs into the initial core inventory of interior Alaska take two forms: 1) those that target the subsampling of the core sample frame and, 2) those that target additional attributes that could be measured at visited sites (above and beyond the FIA national core protocols).

Blue Mountains Elk Nutrition and Habitat Models

April 30 - May 1, 2013

 

The second and final Blue Mountains elk modeling workshop was held on April 30-May 1, 2013 in Pendleton, Oregon.  Over 80 attendees listened to a variety of presentations about the final Blue Mountains nutrition and habitat use models.  The last two presenters described example applications of the models in local landscapes – McCoy Creek and Mount Emily.  The day ended with a guided discussion session led by Dr. Dana Sanchez, Assistant Professor at Oregon State University. Team members offered hands-on instruction in model applications in ArcGIS on the second day, with help from the model beta-testers who have been assisting the team by offering feedback based on their use of the models with their own data.

Western Oregon and Washington Elk Nutrition and Habitat Models

April 04 - April 05, 2011

 

On Tuesday, over 100 attendees listened to a full day’s slate of presentations (see links above) describing the project background, modeling methods, the final models and results of their validation, model application in example landscapes, and a project summary. The afternoon’s presentations included talks by project beta testers, who had worked with the modeling team to test-drive the models in their home offices and then applied the models to on-the-ground projects in their own areas. On Wednesday, a smaller group of modeling enthusiasts returned for a hands-on demonstration of the suite of “toolboxes” used to apply the elk nutrition and habitat use models on the landscape.
