Abstract

A research-management partnership is working to develop management options for adapting to climate change on Olympic National Forest (ONF) in northwest Washington state-the first step in moving towards implementation of climate change in large-scale management and planning. This effort has changed the context for management on ONF, raised awareness of the effects of a major extrinsic factor on resource objectives, and generated enthusiasm on national forests in the Pacific Northwest regarding adaptation to climate change.
