Ecosystem partnerships.

How to build partnerships to encourage ecosystem management on forest and range lands in mixed ownership was the subject of an October workshop in New Haven, Connecticut.

The workshop, conducted by AMERICAN FORESTS' Forest Policy Center, was hosted by the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The more than 70 participants represented a broad range of groups and interests, including federal agencies, Congress, state governments and agencies, universities, national conservation groups, corporations, nonindustrial private foresters, and grassroots organizations. Members of the Policy Center's Advisory Council and AMERICAN FORESTS' Board of Directors also participated.

The presentations triggered lively and thought-provoking debates, and the Forest Policy Center is preparing a workshop summary that outlines presentations, discussions, and conclusions. Copies are available from Susan Stedfast at AMERICAN FORESTS. Support for the workshop was provided by several federal and state agencies and progressive forest-products corporations.
