M E S S A G E FROM THE DEAN
Supporting research and outreach on forest sustainability and
certification have been important efforts during my term as
Rachel A. Woods Professor. During the past year, the College
examined future opportunities for our C. L. Pack Experimental
Forest. Pack has historically been vital to our research, teaching,
and outreach mission. I want to ensure its continued relevance
by positioning it in the forefront of experimental and demonstration
forests nationwide. Along with my decision to create a new
Center for Sustainable Forestry at Pack Forest (see article, page 2),
I also accepted a proposal to seek third party green certification
for Pack Forest operations.
Interest in voluntary forest certification continues to grow in our
region. Recently our state’s trust forests were assessed for
environmental stewardship under the Forest Stewardship Council’s
principles and found to be significantly above acceptable levels,
meeting or exceeding the standards in all but one area. A pre-audit
under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) was also conducted;
the full audit will occur when funding is available. Interest in
public and private forest certification goes beyond regional and
national boundaries — it is a major issue worldwide. Environmental
groups see it as a way to verify a landowner’s or corporation’s
commitment to sustainable forestry, while corporations and public
agencies may use it to increase market share, gain new markets,
or gain public trust.
At Pack Forest, we will initially seek certification under the SFI
Standard. SFI, a management-based system that relies on general
standards conforming to sustainable forestry principles, calls upon
participants to meet market demands while using environmentally
responsible practices promoting the protection of wildlife, plants,
soil, and air and water quality to ensure the future of our nation’s
forests. Specific objectives, including using the best available
science and conservation practices; managing for wildlife habitat,
protection of water quality, visual impact of forest operations,
and recognition of qualities of special ecological, cultural, and
historical significance; promoting efficient use of forest resources
and continual improvement in sustainable forestry practices;
and full reporting, cooperation with stakeholders, and provision
for public participation, translate these principles into action.
Design publication produced by CINTRAFOR and US-China Build, front cover.
In North America, over 136 million acres of forestland are now
certified under SFI; 104 million of these acres are independently
third-party certified. This makes SFI the largest forest certification
program in North America and the only one that meets International Organization for Standardization auditing protocols requiring
strict separation between standard setting and accreditation
of certifying bodies. We will evaluate other certification systems
and, if appropriate, pursue them as well. We will also explore
development of a certification template that small non-industrial
forest landowners can use to achieve cost-effective certification.
Rose Braden, Center for International Trade in Forest Products (CINTRAFOR) research consultant, is helping
the US-China Build Program introduce wood frame construction to Chinese architects and construction
professionals. A new, full-color, bilingual publication, Distinctive Designs: a showcase of American wood
building materials, features over 50 profiles of innovative uses of U.S. wooden building materials in residential
and commercial projects and highlights the design flexibility of wood for designers and end-users. As
project manager, Braden coordinated architect involvement, worked on text translation, and helped develop
project profiles and the book's design layout. The book will be distributed in China through US-China Build's
Shanghai office and at seminars and trade events. U.S. companies can also use it as a sales tool illustrating the
use of U.S. building materials.
Third party verification, supported by a thorough documentation
of policies and a commitment to sustainable practices, will
demonstrate our leadership in integrating the concept of
sustainability and its three component values — ecological,
social, and economic — into all of our College’s programs.
This will help set the standard for responsible professional forestry
in our state and throughout the region.
US-China Build, a cooperative of U.S. wood products associations and government agencies, sponsors sales
missions, Chinese-language and U.S. publications, U.S. pavilions at Chinese trade shows, and market research.
Sales as a result of U.S. company participation have totaled $3 million. The program is organized jointly by the
Evergreen Building Products Association and American Forest & Paper Association, with additional funding
from the USDA and the U.S. Department of Commerce. Along with CINTRAFOR's contribution to the program,
other support and cooperation is provided by the Washington Office of Community, Trade, and Economic
Development, The Softwood Export Council, and APA-The Engineered Wood Association.

College Plans New Center for Sustainable Forestry at Pack Forest
In 1929, the first class of UW forestry students tossed their bedrolls and notebooks into the newly constructed cabins at Charles Lathrop Pack Experimental
Forest. Seventy-five years later, learners in academic, professional, and public
education programs still benefit from Pack Forest’s valuable field and research
opportunities and demonstrations of forestry and environmental processes in
action. The forest itself is a field laboratory containing a diversity of forest types,
sites, and soils. Ongoing research projects at Pack include short-term evaluations
of tree spacing and growth, long-term evaluations of the effects of pruning on
wood quality, and forest amphibian response to landscape vegetation patterns.
Projects range from individual graduate student research to large projects
undertaken by the College’s Stand Management Cooperative.
Now Pack Forest will play an exciting new role as the site of the College’s Center
for Sustainable Forestry. The Center will both embrace and update the forest’s
historic mission, said Dean Bruce Bare as he announced the new Center in
December. “The term ‘conservation’ used 77 years ago to describe the concept
to be taught and demonstrated at Pack then meant keeping land financially
productive, largely through reforestation. While that meaning is still valid, the
College has adopted a much broader vision and mission that focuses on the
concept of ‘sustainability’ — the ecological, economic, and social sciences by
which we can better understand and manage our natural resources.”
University Extension, Washington Department of Natural Resources State Lands
and Stewardship Program, Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public
Instruction, and regional colleges and universities.
The Center will also be charged with management responsibilities for Pack’s
forest properties and conference center facilities. Forest operations will provide
revenue to support Center and other College programs and to demonstrate
sustainable forest operations. The conference center will continue to provide
management and scheduling for classroom, conference facilities, residential
accommodations, food service, and grounds maintenance.
Says Bare, “The Center for Sustainable Forestry will provide an exciting new
chapter in our long history of forestry education leadership at the College and
at Pack Forest.”
The Center will be charged with discovering, teaching, and demonstrating the
concepts of sustainable forestry, with a special focus on the College’s strategic
themes — sustainable forest enterprises and sustainable land and ecosystem
management in an urbanizing world — as well as providing services associated
with sustainable forestry such as forest certification consulting and technology
transfer. Existing College programs will benefit from Center support through
partnerships in outreach and demonstration. The Center will also develop its own
programs implementing the College’s strategic themes — possibilities include
watershed and community development, forestry extension with a focus on
sustainability, forest certification services, and public participation in resource
management through forestry forums.
The Center’s development of partnerships with key public and private organizations will enhance the College’s recognition as a leader in sustainable forestland
management. Pack Forest already partners with the Nisqually Watershed Council
on a management plan for this vast watershed encompassing a broad range of
land uses and jurisdictions. Potential new partners include Washington State
Historical cabins at Pack Forest provide overnight accommodation for conferences and field classes.
Study of Salmon and Aquatic Insect Interactions
Will Aid in Stream Restoration
Jon Honea, Ph.D. candidate in the College’s ecosystems analysis program,
is researching an important step in understanding the ecology of marine
nutrients in salmon spawning streams. Honea, studying under Professor Bob
Gara, is examining the effects of salmon spawning on aquatic insect production
— whether nutrients released by dead salmon fertilize streams, resulting in
more insects and thus more food for juvenile salmon. Spawning salmon bring
large quantities of marine nutrients into fresh-water ecosystems. For example,
Kennedy Creek, which drains into the south end of Puget Sound, receives up to
85,000 chum spawners in its approximately 4 kilometers of available spawning
habitat — about 3.5 kilograms of nutrient-rich salmon tissue per square meter
of stream and riparian area.
Researchers have traced nutrients released by spawning salmon to many different types of organisms, from freshwater invertebrates and fish to birds and bears
and even to streamside vegetation. These organisms take up the nutrients by
feeding directly on salmon eggs and spawned-out carcasses, taking up dissolved
nutrients (e.g., algae and fungi), or feeding on other organisms that have taken up
salmon nutrients. Honea’s research hypothesis is that streams fertilized by salmon
nutrients are more productive than streams that receive relatively few or no
salmon. Although salmon disturbing the stream bed as they dig nests for spawning may initially decrease insect populations, populations may subsequently
increase from the availability of salmon nutrients. Long after the salmon carcasses
and eggs have been consumed or decomposed, increased insect production
would benefit the hatching fry and salmon that remain in streams because insects
are an important food source for them.
Past research has demonstrated that insects are attracted to and consume salmon
carcasses and eggs, insect growth-rate increases with consumption of salmon
muscle tissue, and there are more insects in the local areas around salmon carcasses. However, given that streams are highly variable habitats frequently
disturbed by high water flows, does the availability of marine nutrients really
result in more insects overall? Honea’s research is measuring aquatic insect
production in Kennedy Creek and then linking production differences to salmon
by tracing the pathways of stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen through the
stream food web. Measurements are made both upstream and downstream of a
series of waterfalls that prevents upstream salmon migration.
The study of Kennedy Creek research results will aid restoration and conservation
efforts by providing a greater understanding of the role of salmon nutrients in
aquatic insect community dynamics and the importance of insects as a link
between generations of salmon.

Washington Park Arboretum
Sponsors Show Garden
New Endowed Fellowship
Honors the Late Dean Bethel
Visiting Scholar Program
with Taiwan University
The Washington Park Arboretum sponsored a show garden
at February’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle.
“Gardens in a Forest Glade” was designed by Iain
Robertson, Associate Professor in Landscape Architecture
and adjunct faculty member in the College, along with
design students in UW’s Landscape Architecture program.
Set in a Pacific Northwest forest-like grove, the garden
presented twelve large container gardens, each embodying
plant communities of ecosystems around the world,
including Amazonia, Crete, a Central American cloud forest,
Turkey, the Sonoran Desert, and a Rocky Mountain alpine
area. The garden illustrated and reflected the Washington
Park Arboretum, where open groves serve as living
backdrops for plant collections from around the world.
The garden was constructed by volunteers from the
Arboretum Foundation and UW Arboretum staff, many
of whom met and talked to the public during the five-day
show. The Arboretum Foundation sponsored the preview
party opening the show as an Arboretum fundraiser.
The College is pleased to announce the establishment
of the James and Marinelle Bethel Endowed Graduate
Fellowship. Through the wonderful generosity of Jim
and Dorothy Bethel, the fellowship will help the
College recruit and support students in all of ifs
graduate programs and fulfill its vision of providing
world class knowledge and leadership for environmental and natural resource issues. Jim, who teaches civil
engineering at Purdue University, is the son of the
College’s late dean, Jim Bethel, Sr. The memorial
endowment honors the strong research legacy instilled
and nurtured by Dean Bethel and, through its
unrestricted nature, wisely allows for flexibility and
future change.
Assistant Professor Sarah Reichard is the first faculty
exchange with the College’s sister institution, the College
of Agriculture and Natural Resources at National Chung
Hsing University in Taichung, Taiwan. Says Reichard, “Over
80 students registered for the intensive short course in
conservation biology that I was invited to teach. The course
focused on conservation messages using examples from
invasion biology, rare plant studies, and ecological restoration.
I also discussed conservation and evolution with a class
in evolutionary biology, gave a seminar to the forestry
department, and presented a lecture on biological invasions
to Taiwan Forestry Research Institute scientists in Taipei.
Working with students was the best part of the experience.
I found them to be respectful and inquisitive — with lots of
questions and some discussions outside of class about
conservation and educational opportunities in the U.S.
College involvement in the show also included a booth
and events sponsored by the Center for Urban Horticulture
and UW Arboretum staff and a booth co-sponsored by
the College and the UW’s Program on the Environment.
The garden won two awards: a Silver Medal for design
and the Pacific Horticulture Magazine award for the
garden best exemplifying a Northwest garden.

Rural Technology Initiative
Reviewed
The Rural Technology Initiative (RTI), a collaborative
effort of the College and Washington State University
funded by a Congressional appropriation through USDA
Forest Service, recently hosted a site visit by a review
team chosen by the USDA’s Cooperative State Research,
Education, and Extension Service. RTI was created in
2000 to empower the use of technology in rural areas to
manage forests for increased product and environmental
values in support of local communities. RTI requested
the review to gain external input and an evaluation of
the program’s sustainability. The review team’s final
report praised RTI for its major contributions in
providing usable, cutting-edge technology to rural forest
managers. The report noted both that these technologies would not have been available under conventional
outreach structures, as well as their potential
applications to regional and national constituencies.
But it was not all work! My gracious host, Israel Jiang, and
his graduate students Suzy, Dieter, and Lisa, made sure that
I visited the nearby national seed storage facility (which is
impressive!), a mangrove forest, and an historic part of
Taipei. We also had excursions to Starbucks (yes, they are
there too) and to local restaurants. On my last day in
Taiwan, two scientists took me to visit a long-term
ecological research station in northern Taiwan, the Fu Shan
Experimental Forest, which is one of the most beautiful
places I have seen. The range of temperate Asian trees in
the station’s forest and arboretum was astounding and
several sightings of tiny barking deer were an added bonus.
Things I learned from the experience: Taiwanese students
are very serious scholars but like to have fun too, the food
was wonderful (real bamboo shoots are nothing like those
rubbery things that come in a can here), and to drive in
Taiwan you must be completely insane or have resigned
yourself to the fates!”

Center for Water and
Watershed Studies
Annual Review
The Center for Water and Watershed Studies (CWWS)
held its annual review of research on February 6,
2004. Organized around the theme, “The Science of
Watersheds,” the day-long event attracted nearly
300 attendees to hear student and faculty researchers
speak on topics ranging from the impacts of global
climate change on watersheds to Pacific salmon
ecology conservation to storm water runoff issues.
Poster sessions and an opportunity to discuss
synthesis of research results also gave policy makers,
public agency scientists and engineers, and students,
who filled the HUB West Ballroom on the UW campus,
a chance to learn about the latest research on
watersheds. CWWS, jointly administered by the
Colleges of Forest Resources, Engineering, and Ocean
and Fishery Sciences, is a source of comprehensive
aquatic resources and water management information to maintain and enhance the earth’s watersheds.
Highlights
The Denman Forestry Issues Series on March 8, “Wildfire
in the West,” featured College faculty Jim Agee, Bruce
Lippke, David Peterson, and Clare Ryan along with
speakers representing public and tribal land managers
and the Wilderness Society speaking on the complex
issue of managing the threat of catastrophic wildfires
in the inland west. The program was attended by 85
invited guests from a wide spectrum of natural resource
stakeholders. It is available for viewing on UWTV and
on streaming video from the UWTV website.
The College and the UW Alumni Association cosponsored the lecture series, “Sustaining Our Northwest
World: When Humans and Nature Collide,” in February
and March. The well-attended lectures featured College
faculty Jerry Franklin, Steve West, and John Marzluff
speaking on the challenges of forest stewardship in the
21st century, preserving wildlife habitat for bats in the
region’s managed forests, and balancing human
needs and desires with ecological functions in
urbanizing landscapes.
Professor Jim Agee was awarded the Virginia and
Prentice Bloedel Professorship, effective January 2004.
The Bloedel Professorship, established by the Bloedels
in 1987 to assist the UW in retaining and attracting
outstanding scholars and teachers, provides resources
that supplement state-paid faculty salaries. Agee will
use the award to pursue promising new avenues of
research in fire ecology.
Professor Dave Briggs, Director of the Stand Management Cooperative, was voted Vice-Chair of the Faculty
as the College restructured from two academic
divisions to a single faculty body. Professor Rick
Gustafson serves as Faculty Chair.
Dean Bruce Bare hosted an April meeting on the UW
campus of the Western Regional National Association of
Professional Forestry Schools and Colleges (NAPFSC),
of which he is chair.
Changes in the College’s graduate programs designed
to increase efficiency and ensure that all students
share knowledge from core subject areas were formally
approved in Winter Quarter. A new fifth-year,
professional non-thesis master’s program, Master
of Environmental Horticulture, was also approved.
Another new fifth-year professional non-thesis master’s
program, Master of Forestry, is being reviewed for
approval in Autumn 2004.

Rainforests at the Crossroads
JASON Project in Panama Inspires Students
to Study Science
The JASON Foundation, working with NASA, the UW and other universities, and the
Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), recently brought discovery into the
classroom with the program “Rainforests at the Crossroads.” JASON, founded by
Robert Ballard, the scientist who discovered the wreck of the RMS Titanic, is named in
the spirit of the myth of Jason and the Argonauts. It enables students and teachers to do
fieldwork from the classroom, giving them an opportunity to pursue the “Golden Fleece”
by learning through adventure and discovery. JASON visits a different location each
year — this winter, middle school students, teachers, and scientists explored rainforests
on Panama’s Barro Colorado Island while JASON’s worldwide network of classrooms
participated via televised broadcasts and interactive technology.
Stephanie Bohlman, Ph.D. candidate in the College and a NASA Earth System Science
Fellow, is a JASON guest researcher who provided scientific oversight for the field
broadcasts, and with NASA researchers and educators wrote on-line activity for the
project. Bohlman was one of the researchers hosting two weeks of live broadcasts
from the field site, working on camera with students to answer questions and coordinate
student input from interactive sites in the U.S. An estimated 1.6 million people worldwide watched the broadcasts. College alumnus Mark Wishnie (’98), Director of Yale
University’s Native Species Reforestation Project at STRI and a JASON host researcher,
helped students learn about reforestation in Panama.
Through her dissertation research on Barro Colorado Island and the Parque
Metropolitano canopy crane near Panama City, Bohlman is studying how remote

sensing technology can be used to determine carbon uptake and map tropical forest species.
Many researchers are looking at how uptake and storage of carbon by forest ecosystems
relate to global warming and climate change. Current models of carbon uptake are based on
relationships between environmental and biological phenomena developed in simple crop,
grassland, or temperate ecosystems, which are then applied to the more complex ecosystems of tropical forests.Working with Professor Tom Hinckley, Bohlman is testing these
relationships in tropical forests for the first time. Results show that important modifications
are needed to account for tropical forests’ multi-layered canopies and complex phenological
patterns. Unique tools, including a helicopter-mounted multi-spectral camera and canopy
access via the canopy crane, allowed her to look at field and remote sensing data at the
same spatial scale. Collaborating with College alumnus Matthew Clark (’98), she has also
shown that mapping some tropical forest canopy species — important in biodiversity and
conservation studies — is possible using remote sensing. After receiving her dissertation,
Bohlman will research forest dynamics and fragmentation in Manaus, Brazil with STRI.
PNW CESU Expands Membership and Attracts Research
The Pacific Northwest Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (PNW CESU), a cooperative venture among
academic institutions, a state agency, a science commission, and federal land management/natural resource
research organizations, was established at the College in October 2000 — the UW serves as host institution.
Management and stewardship of the nation’s public lands and waters requires skillful public service
supported by sound science and responsive technical assistance. The goal of the National CESU Network
connecting 17 bio-geographic regions, each served by a distinct CESU, is to improve the scientific base for
managing federal lands by providing resource managers with high-quality scientific research, technical
assistance, and education.
Since the establishment of the PNW CESU, more than 108 projects totaling over $6 million have been funded
through its Cooperative Agreement. Projects range from historic preservation projects on National Park
cultural sites to an analysis of black bear distribution patterns in Olympic National Park.
PNW CESU co-leaders Professor Gordon Bradley and NPS Research Coordinator Darryll Johnson anticipate
steady growth of the cooperative’s research funding as well as greater opportunities to facilitate interdisciplinary and interagency cooperation. In the past year alone project funds totaled over $2.75 million, a 30
percent increase over the previous year’s activity. 2003 events included a meeting of U.S. Forest Service
supervisors with National Park Service superintendents to discuss social science research and the Anthropogenic Northwest Prairies Conference held at the UW and drawing participants from 13 state and federal
agencies. The upcoming 2004 PNW CESU Annual Meeting, planned for fall, will focus on the theme of
“Human Dimensions in Public Land Management.”
