Abstract

Drought, wildfire, extinction, and invasive species are considered serious threats to the health of our forests. Although these issues have global connections, we most readily see their consequences locally and attempt to respond with management based on science. For 100 years, the Fort Valley Experimental Forest (FVEF) has provided educational and experimental support for management of natural ecosystems in the Southwest. This introduction provides a context for how we address forest health threats through adaptive management.
