1. According to Zengin et al., today, over ____ percent of the forest land in Turkey is owned and managed by the state.

a) 99
b) 75
c) 50
2. In the Republic of Turkey, newly developed forest plans are now conducted under which system?
a) Conventional Forest Management Planning Models
b) Mediterranean region models
c) Ecosystem-Based Functional Planning Models

3. In the Republic of Turkey, forests with a well-developed natural structure that generated from seed sources are called:

a) ) coppice.
b) high.
c) reserved.

4. Based on results from the survey by Aguilar et al., Missouri private forest landowners disagree that harvesting woody biomass is likely to:

a) result in water pollution.
b) result in soil erosion.
c) degrade wildlife habitat.

5. Aguilar et al. observed some of the highest levels of willingness-to-harvest both timber and woody biomass among:

a) enthusiast landowners.
b) passive landowners.
c) retreat landowners.
6. Aguilar et al. suggest which of the following public policy approaches to promote forest management and encourage the supply of woody biomass from Missouri NIPFs?
a) Pay foresters for preparing management plans for NIPF owners with public funding.
b) Provide a subsidy for harvesting of solid timber products in conjunction with biomass.
c) A review and update of the existing Missouri State Forestry Law may provide an opportunity to reestablish preferential tax treatments.

7. Why did the Moore et al. analysis not consider the value of timber provision when identifying conservation priorities?

a) Timber provision is not considered to be an ecosystem service.
b) The analysis focused on alternatives to timber production.
c) There are market mechanisms for landowners to receive the benefits from timber provision.
8. The article by Moore et al. compared the conservation priorities suggested by both stated preference and benefit transfer value estimates. Which valuation approach is the preferred method when prioritizing conservation efforts?
a) Stated preference methods are preferred because stated preference methods are based on primary data collected specifically for the current project.
b) Benefit transfer methods are preferred because stated preference methods are often biased due to the hypothetical nature of the experiment.
c) Neither approach is clearly preferred in all situations, but it is important to understand the implications of the method used.

9. In their analysis, Abbas et al. found that, with only two exceptions, the highest cost contributor to the total supply chain cost when trucking wood within 150 miles was the cost of:

a) harvesting.
b) stumpage.
c) transportation.
10. The Abbas et al. study found that as a percentage of the total supply cost, within 150 miles from site using truck delivery, the cost of harvesting alone ranges from:
a) as low as 66% to as high as 77%.
b) as low as 45% to as high as 63%.
c) as low as 32% to as high as 57%.
11. Abbas et al. found a number of key factors that resulted in the very different occurrences of different harvest cost values. These key factors included:
a) harvesting system used, stand characteristics, stocking, tonnage removed, tree size, number of trees per acre and size of truck used to haul the wood.
b) harvesting system used, stand characteristics, stocking, tonnage removed, tree size, number of trees per acre and size of harvesting equipment used.
c) transportation system used, stand characteristics, stocking, tonnage removed, tree size, number of trees per acre and size of harvesting equipment used.
12. In their study, Schneider et al. found what sources of conflict were experienced by a majority of recreational horseback trailer riders in Minnesota?
a) Hearing other users on the trail and litter on or near the trail
b) Accessibility issues and others not yielding
c) Too many others on the trail and others out of control
13. According to Schneider et al. their study results indicate that opportunities to manage for the recreational horseback trail rider include:
a) creating horseback riding only trails.
b) providing timely and targeted educational messaging regarding the importance of trail etiquette and quiet.
c) giving preference to horseback riders' needs, since they experience more conflicts and stress than other types of recreational trail users.
14. According to Williams et al., assisted migration might be warranted for a species under which of the following circumstances?
a) Moderate or high risk of decline or extinction, can be established, and high economic value
b) High risk of decline or extinction, can be established, and its migration provides more benefit than cost
c) High risk of decline or extinction, can be established, and high economic value
15. As discussed in Williams et al., the goal of assisted migration, in regards to deployment, is to use:
a) seed sources adapted to future climatic conditions at target outplanting sites.
b) local seed sources because they are best adapted to the local conditions.
c) high levels of seed source diversity since future climatic conditions may be different than now predicted.
16. As discussed in Williams et al., genetic diversity can be conserved by:
a) protecting natural reserves in heterogeneous landscapes, through provenance and seed source tests, and collecting seed from many populations across their geographic range for long-term storage.
b) the movement of populations to sites that are climatically suitable for growth and productivity at some point in the future.
c) using drastically disturbed areas as sites to test assisted migration.
