The target audience was all resource professionals working in timbered environments. An outcome of that event was the need to promote 1) a greater understanding of the topic, 2) meaningful research, monitoring, and reporting, 3) discussions regarding management objectives, and 4) a new synthesis on dead wood management. An important tool in achieving these ends is the creation of a list-serve to support these discussions, an effort which was supported by many of the attendees.
