Human dimensions of adaptive forest management

This study draws on international experience with adaptive management to consider lessons for woodland management in the UK.

Adaptive management is a systematic approach to learning from innovative resource management. Many of the challenges for implementation are social, particularly communication and decision-making among diverse stakeholders, and change to organisational learning culture.
