The category of collaborative research includes programs that are based on agreements between public agencies and university scientists to address interdisciplinary research problems in forest science.
The 16,000-acre H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest on the Willamette National forest is administered by the USDA Forest Service, and research is jointly managed by OSU and the Pacific Northwest Research Station under a National Science Foundation-sponsored long-term agreement. During the last 21 years as a part of the NSF Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program, the Andrews Experimental Forest has become a leader in the analysis of forest and stream ecosystem dynamics.
