Description: In response to the rapidly growing demand for information about longleaf pine ecosystems, the U.S. Forest Service, Southern Research Station, has established a new research work unit, Restoring and Managing Longleaf Pine Ecosystems (SRS-4158). The unit has seven scientists with expertise in plant physiology, ecology, silviculture, and biometrics. Two experimental forests, the Palustris and the Escambia, provide a land base for practical experiments in and demonstrations of longleaf pine establishment, development, and management. Headquartered in Auburn, AL, scientists in the unit are also stationed at Clemson, SC and Pineville, LA, providing broader customer access and research opportunities in a variety of longleaf pine ecosystems.
