This web site has been designed to serve as a consolidated and centralized source of reference information dealing with the ecology and management of aspen (Populus tremuloides) communities in North America. Its purpose is to provide bibliographic, research, and management information to all stakeholders, including land and resource managers, scientists, and the general public.
Additionally, this portal is designed to facilitate digital collaboration and information sharing. Individuals and agencies have the ability to post data and documents related to aspen communities (habitats), thereby enhancing communication and improving research and management effort.
The Aspen Delineation Project is a collaborative effort of the U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Region, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the California Office of Bureau of Land Management. This undertaking falls within ADP goals to help agencies identify, map, treat, and monitor aspen habitats. The ADP has also been asked to explore challenges, issues, and roadblocks surrounding aspen management on public lands.
