Modeling Trends in Forest Management, Exurban Development & Biodiversity Conservation Under Alternative Policy Portfolios in Northern Idaho Grant uri icon



  • In an interdisciplinary effort, we will use social surveys and ecological studies to project landscape conditions 10, 25, and 50 years into the future for intermixed forest and agricultural lands in northern Idaho. We will evaluate the social, economic, and ecological tradeoffs for alternative economic and regulatory policies for biodiversity conservation, timber production and residential development.
