New online scientific knowledge system developed.

New online scientific knowledge system developed. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Southern Research Station, and the Southern Regional Extension Forestry Office (SREF) are developing an online hypertext encyclopedia system to make forestry research information available to the public. The system revolutionizes organization and communication of scientific knowledge and information. Originally designed for natural resource professionals and others who desire direct, comprehensive access to the research literature on forestry topics, the system will also be a valuable resource to anyone with related interests.

To review and comment about the pilot encyclopedia about the forested ecosystems in the southern Appalachians, go to www.forestryencyclopedia.net. An online comment form is on the homepage for the encyclopedia.
