KEYWORDS:
human dimensions, attitudes and perceptions, resource management, forest management, forests
PURPOSE:
The intent of compiling this record and initial analysis of newspaper articles, magazine stories, and books is to provide basic information on this aspect of the outreach program from the Andrews Forest, including the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program based there.
METHODS:
Experimental Design - SS001:
Description: Public communications of the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest were compiled and examined to provide basic information on the outreach program from the Andrews Forest, including the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program.
Field Methods - SS001:
Description: Documentation and analysis are based on a collection of articles and books that have been published since 1980. This collection of articles was accumulated over time and without a consistent search of the literature. The records reported here were based on first determining what communications to attribute to the Andrews Forest program; second, considering the completeness of this record; third, ranking the items in terms of strength of representation of the Andrews Forest program and people. Finally, numbers of communications per year since 1980 are displayed for categories of (1) geographic scope of outlet (i.e., local, regional, or national publications), (2) type of communication (i.e., newspaper/newsletter, magazine, scientific journal, book), and (3) initiation of the story (i.e., “base level” science reporting to the public, policy/management event, or natural disturbance event).
