Colleges of Agriculture at the Land Grant Universities: A Profile
The graph shows that most forest resources research expenditures in 1992 by 1862 institutions and forestry schools went to timber management; harvesting, processing, and marketing; and forest protection.
More in-depth study of individual projects is needed before it can be determined how research within a research program group differs across institutions with respect to specific focus or goal. The CRIS classification system does provide some additional breakdown. For example, when "forest resources" research is examined more closely, we can see that timber management is the primary focus and harvesting, processing, and marketing forest products is the secondary focus. These two areas of research accounted for more than 50 percent of all forest resources research in 1992 (Figure 7-2; see also Appendix Table 5).
