Abstract : This document provides proceedings of the seminar on the Preservation of Flora and Fauna in Military Training Areas. The seminar was sponsored by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) Committee on Challenges of Modern Society. Fifteen presentations were given on topics such as the effects of military training on soil, vegetation, birds, and mammals, and the various programs being used by NATO countries to help preserve and conserve these resources. The objectives of this document are to 1) disseminate the results of this seminar to U.A. Army installation offices and headquarters responsible for managing Army installation offices and headquarters responsible for managing Army training lands and 2) provide a permanent documentation of the seminar proceedings that can be used by NATO members. These proceedings provide valuable and innovative insight about how other countries are handling the environmental problems associated with military training. They also represent a step in the process toward developing systems and guidelines to help U.S. Army installation land managers conserve the natural resources for which they are responsible, while still providing a more realistic training area.
