DescriptionThe words "sustain" or "sustainable" are commonly found in the mission statements of resource management agencies. The mission of the USDA Forest Service, for example, is to "sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations." Sustaining the health, diversity, and productivity of a resource has certain fundamental requirements (Thayer 1989; Fedkiw et al. 2004). They start with a commitment to manage land and the water resources for the long term. It requires connecting the people living in the landscape with the natural resources that support their lives.
