DescriptionDuring the past two decades, presentations at International Symposia on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM) have covered an increasingly broad scope of topics on natural resource issues. The wildland-urban interface (WUI) was a key topic of discussion at the ninth ISSRM in 2002: a reflection of the response by social scientists to increasing residential development in wildland environments and fire management in the WUI. The dialogue included the causes, effects and policy implications of expanded residential development in wildland areas. This dialogue is certain to continue and become more dynamic, especially as ISSRM continues to evolve.
