Abstract

Research in the vegetation types of the Central Arizona Highlands has evolved, for the most part, from single resource evaluations (increased water yield) to evaluations that consider the multiple benefits of vegetation management treatments. The papers presented in this publication have demonstrated that vegetation can be managed to increase water yields, while providing timber, forage, recreation, wildlife, and other amenities. One question that should be asked is to what extent can the established research framework and available databases be used to meet future management-oriented informational needs in the Central Arizona Highlands and elsewhere in the Southwest?
