Abstract
  • This report documents an Oregon Department of Forestry pilot project conducted through the Institute for Natural Resources at Oregon State University on a science synthesis method known as systematic review- a rigorous, transparent literature review technique developed and now widely used in clinical medicine. A systematic review focuses narrowly on a single question and uses an explicit protocol for finding, screening, grading and integrating all primary research relevant to that question. Systematic review is now being explored as a means to collate scientific evidence in natural resource conservation. But natural resource management and science differ significantly from clinical medicine, and much remains to be learned about adapting systematic review techniques for use in conservation research. ODF commissioned this project to learn more about applying systematic review to technical natural resource questions. The project investigated the feasibility of using systematic review techniques to locate and synthesize technical information regarding the effectiveness of the salmonid habitat restoration practice of placing of large wood into streams. A key question was whether the systematic review process could be simplified and used to credibly assess scientific research concerning a topic that is relevant to ODF and their stakeholders. This report summarizes the project process and key lessons learned from testing systematic review in the context of natural resource science. A companion document- “Does wood placement in Pacific northwestern North American streams affect salmonid abundance, growth, survival or habitat complexity? A pilot test of systematic review techniques” covers findings of the review itself.
