    Description

    Economics is the science of allocating scarce resources among unlimited wants." That was Krista Gebert's response when I asked her to define economics for me. Having taught several economics classes at the University of Montana after graduate school, Krista had the definition down to its essence. As an economist with RMRS in Missoula, Krista applies economics to a variety of scarce forest and human resources. Krista is the newest executive committee member of BEMRP, representing the Human Dimensions Science Program of RMRS.
