Native Ecosystems Council (NEC) brought suit against the United States Forest Service (USFS) and a regional forester (353) alleging violations of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (354) and the National Forest Management Act of 1976 (NFMA).
In some ways, ecosystem management repackages rules from the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, which required the agency to study the environmental and human impacts of its actions across a landscape, not just in individual timber stands, and the National Forest Management Act of 1976, which asked it to protect biodiversity, including key species like the spotted owl, and promote the efficient economic use of its land.
