DescriptionIt is clear that our perspective, profession, society and approach to natural resource management has changed a lot over the last century and particularly over the last 30 years. We have adjusted to many changes and will be challenged to adjust to many more in the future. Understanding the global environmental perspective and expected trends should help us as we deal with the implications of change in our research and management positions. The trends for increased use of multidisciplinary approaches, concern for ecological management, global involvement, attention to risk assessment, and the use of science in establishing policy will make for an exciting professional future. A talented, professional diverse workforce, with a passion for solving problems, serving people, producing resources, and caring for the environment will be needed to meet the challenges.
