April 19, 2012 - Session developed by David D'Amore (USFS PNW Research Station) and Paul Hennon (USFS PNW Research Station). Presentations by Steve Langdon (U. of Alaska Anchorage), Rick Edwards (USFS), Gretchen Harrington (NOAA), Jim Chu (USFS), Ken Lertzman (Simon Fraser University), John Mankowski (USFWS North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative)

Session Abstract: The natural and managed flow of resources in the north coastal temperate rainforest has global, regional, and local impacts. Many boundaries, artificial and natural, static and dynamic, constrain our ability to understand, conserve, and manage natural resources. These boundaries operate over various geographic, ecological, and political scales. Overcoming the challenges confronted when working on cross-boundary research will provide a greater understanding of the energy and material flows through interconnected systems. Aquatic and terrestrial resource conservation and management combined with an understanding of fundamental natural cycles, depends on an ecological analysis that transcends these borders. This session will provide an overview of several natural and human boundaries to provide insight into opportunities and challenges related to integrating scientific analyses across this broad and diverse region.

This video is from a symposium in Juneau, Alaska from April 17-20, 2012 titled Coastal Temperate Rainforests: Integrating Science, Resource Management, and Communities. The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center (ACRC) would like to thank all sponsors, speakers, and participants for making the symposium a success.
