    Description

    In a preliminary investigation of environmental reasoning, Hispanic and Anglo-American visitors were interviewed during the summer of 1991 in two National Forests near Los Angeles. A bilingual research technician approached parties visiting the sample sites and, after a brief introduction, requested that they participate in the study. No more than two persons from each party were interviewed, and a total of 132 interviews were conducted. The data collected during the interviews were evaluated by using theoretical frameworks of environmental ethical reasoning based upon the moral reasoning contributions of psychologists L. Kolhberg and C. Gilligan.
