DescriptionA synthesis of statements and research is presented on different minority communities, and a response to the statement that "ecology is a white man’s problem" is examined. These characterizations provide insight into why ecology may be perceived as a "white man’s problem." The common themes are then used to develop several suggested agency responses. These actions can help to make ecology or ecosystem management more relevant to minority communities and in turn foster more widely based acceptance and support.
