    Description

    In this paper, we evaluate the reasons for gaps in communication between researchers and natural resource managers and identify methods to close these gaps. Gaps originate from differing patterns of language use, disparities in organizational culture and values, generation of knowledge that is too narrowly-focused to solve complex problems, failure by managers to relay informational needs, and failure by researchers to synthesize and package knowledge in useable forms. Information-sharing procedures that can stimulate communication among individuals in different organizations, geographical locations, positions, and disciplines include research and management reviews, information networks, research and management prioritization processes, technical assistance incentives, and demonstration projects. Partners in Flight can be viewed as a model program that facilitates communication and cooperation across traditional barriers.
