A system's resilience is influenced by both within-scale and cross-scale diversity
of function. For example, the boreal forest's properties and patterns are
maintained by a set of processes involving an insect defoliator, the spruce
budworm, two species of trees, and avian predators of the budworm. The thirty-
five species of insectivorous birds are critical. They are distributed across five
body-mass clumps (Holling 1988). Species in the same clump are most likely to
compete with one ...

Scientists in the United States have become increasingly involved at many levels
in the movement toward sustaining biodiversity within managed forest
landscapes. Much of this effort (but not all) has been directed to federal lands.
From an ecological standpoint, the challenge is precisely that facing basic
ecology: to better understand the relationship between structure and function at a
variety of spatial and temporal scales. In forestry that strives to maintain diversity
and functional ...
