This study of our nation's capacity in forestry research was conducted to review the expertise and future needs of forestry-research organizations and to review the current approaches and capacity of natural-resource education to address shortfalls of scientists expected in selected disciplines in the next 10 to 15 years. In performing the assessment, contributors relied on a wealth of background information about forestry research and education capacity, obtaining literature, policy statements, strategic plans, and white papers form many organizations interested in forestry research and education. The forestry research sector is at a crossroads. If left unchanged, its future will entail a steady erosion of intellectual and institutional capacity, and dwindling capacity and impact. This report of forestry research capacity makes recommendations that will help realize a positive, proactive role for forestry research in the future.
