Environmental Studies

Chair: Dr. Len Broberg

This case study documents the effectiveness of stand-scale forest restoration activities

undertaken in the “Penny Stew” project on federal land in the central Siskiyou Mountains

of southwest Oregon. Its dual purpose is to 1) define reference conditions and build a

site-specific case for restoration through multi-scale analysis of historical ecology

(Chapter III), and 2) demonstrate streamlined monitoring protocols that practitioners can

use to adapt restoration practices over time (Chapter IV). Discussion of methodological

efficacy in Chapter IV offers implications for FEAT-FIREMON Integration (FFI), a fire effects monitoring and data analysis software package currently under development for use by wildland fire managers. Finally, this analysis synthesizes findings from reference condition analysis and monitoring results to assess the degree to which the Penny Stew project meets restoration objectives, and it recommends further action including application of management-ignited prescribed fire and sustained monitoring in light of that synthesis (Chapter V).
