This survey evaluates client perspectives regarding a series of seven extension notes on landscape ecology and biodiversity. Results of this evaluation will help us improve future research extension efforts. Although these extension notes were sent to others, due to limited resources, this evaluation sought responses from Ministry of Forests planners only.

The survey reveals audience preferences with respect to extension note content, design, length, and distribution methods. The survey also gathered information about client preferences with respect to extension methods; those surveyed also rated the relative importance of some selected forest management topics. The summary indicates the most common client responses to interview questions. The evaluation concludes with a table of summary recommendations for planning extension notes. Web site addresses for the seven extension notes are listed in the Appendix.

Forest Renewal BC funded the publication of these evaluation results.
