    Description

    In the midst of national concern for preserving ecosystems, stimulating the economy, and providing outdoor recreation opportunities for the American public, the modern recreation-resource decision-maker faces a monumental task. The authors present a series of relevance trees that pinpoint, in terms of interacting social and physical site variables, the important priorities in today's urban, rural, and wildland resource-management decisions. The results of this research provide a fairly simple structure for recreation managers to assess the effect of present and future social and political conditions on recreation planning and development decisions.
