summary and quiz

You've reached the end of Introduction to Silvicultural Systems. You should have knowledge and a clear understanding of the terminology and concepts used in silvicultural systems. If you don't, please go back to those areas where you might need to spend a little more time.

Remember, terms are just words. The actions associated with the terms are much more important than the actual terms. A silviculture prescription that describes an effective, well-conceived set of treatments to meet clear long-term objectives is much more important than applying a label to the prescription.

However, terms can be useful in providing information to others in a concise form. This concise information can be very important for understanding a prescription when reviewing the entire document is not possible.
