Abstract

Federal agency approaches to land management are undergoing a shift from parcel-specific concerns toward a more holistic, ecosystem management approach. Southern bottomland hardwood ecosystems provide important environmental services and commodity goods (Wharton et al. 1982), yet much of our knowledge of these systems comes from anecdotal information. The Bottomland Hardwood Ecosystem Management Project of the U.S. Forest Service is part of a larger, interagency initiative to provide information that will form the scientific basis for ecosystem management of these systems (Harms and Stanturf 1994).
