    Description

    The rapid pace of social and environmental changes over the past few decades has presented significant challenges for the people who manage our public lands. Demographic shifts have placed large populations in close proximity to public lands and have resulted in increased public scrutiny of decision making on those lands. Natural resource managers are required to make informed decisions about multiple resources in complex natural systems in the face of competing and often conflicting objectives and values. The result is that natural resource managers are managing not only resources but also public expectations in the evolving nature of resource management (Tony Cheng, personal communication 2005). The challenge for today's natural resource manager is thus to optimize the management of multiple resources while minimizing the negative impacts of any given decision, and, at the same time, to engender trust and acceptance of the decision process. No small task.
