Evaluation of researcher's decisions in short rotation forestry

Evaluation of researcher's decisions in short rotation forestry

Forest Science 33(1): 30-42

A survey of short-rotation forestry research from 1966-82 provided insights into the political, socioeconomic, institutional, and personal factors influencing decisions made by forestry researchers. Scientists first entered short rotation forestry research because of personal contacts with other scientists, because they considered this a "productive" research area, because funds were available, and because of the "energy crisis". They attributed their success primarily to cooperation with other scientists and potential users and to adequate financial support. These findings offer insight into the individual decisions and the economic and political factors that will shape other forestry research frontiers. For.Sci. 33(1): 30-42.
