4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adaptive management is a hybrid of scientific research and resource management, blending methods of investigation and discovery with deliberate manipulations of managed systems. This handbook discusses key aspects of statistics in adaptive management, beginning with a working definition, a demonstration of the value of adaptive management to forestry issues, and an explanation of some of the differences between research studies and adaptive management techniques. Topics of subsequent chapters include the design of experiments, studies of uncontrolled events, retrospective studies, making measurements and estimates, errors of inference, Bayesian statistical methods, decision analysis to take uncertainties into account in forest resource management, and selection of the appropriate statistical methods and asking the right questions.

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides some ideas & suggestions on how adaptive management could be incorporated into the North Coast Land & Resource Management Plan from the outset. It addresses five specific questions: the criteria to assess the resources or values that would benefit from adaptive management; how the planners could approach its negotiations within an adaptive management framework; how the Plan can provide language through objectives & strategies to identify & enable testing of resource management assumptions; the criteria for identifying indicators to test resource management assumptions; the types of analysis that would support an adaptive management approach; and how these analyses should be incorporated into a decision support system for the adaptive management process. The appendix includes an adaptive management decision tree and a description of an adaptive management guidance team
