Abstract

The national Forest Health Monitoring Program of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, has funded over 200 Evaluation Monitoring projects. Evaluation Monitoring is designed to verify and define the extent of deterioration in forest ecosystems where potential problems have been identified. This report is a synthesis of results from over 150 Evaluation Monitoring projects initiated between 1998 and 2007. The purpose of this synthesis is to document results, provide material for a planned online database, and establish priorities for future Evaluation Monitoring projects.
