Modern forest management practices are reliant on the analysis of information in computers. The anecdotal nature of TEK is difficult to represent in computers. Dr. Alan J. Thompson inititated a project on the elicitation, representation, and use of TEK in relation to resource management by using modern Artificial Intelligence methods to create a knowledge base containing literature background, interview questions, responses, and inferences for use in in further discussions regarding TEK in resource management. The database and background information regarding the project are available on the website:
