Forest Service research and development: improvements in delivery of research results can help ensure that benefits of research are realized : report to the Majority Leader, U.S. Senate. by U.S. Government Accountability Office

"recent decades, managing the nation's public and private forests and rangelands has become increasingly complex, requiring a sound understanding of science and science-based tools to address these complexities. The Department of
Agriculture's Forest Service maintains a research and development program (FS R&D) to help provide scientific information and tools. GAO was asked to examine
(1) the scope of research and development carried out by FS R&D
and some of its resulting accomplishments, (2) trends in resources used in performing FS
R&D work and the effects of those trends on its research efforts and priorities, and (3) recent steps FS
R&D has taken to improve its ability to fulfill its mission and challenges it faces in doing so. In conducting this review, GAO analyzed FS R&D
funding data for fiscal years 2000 to
2009 and staffing data for fiscal years
2006 to 2009 and interviewed officials from FS R&D, other federal agencies,
and nonfederal entities.
