Forest resource issues have been on the front page of newspapers in northwestern North America for the past two decades. Superimposed on the complexity of managing ecosystems is growing concern about increasing temperatures and other aspects of changes in the atmospheric environment. Managers of
public and private forestlands face increasing pressures to include climate change issues, particularly the disposition of carbon, in long-term management plans. Management, economic and policy approaches to carbon flows in natural resources are evolving rapidly.
