DescriptionThese proceedings contain the contributed papers and panel presentations, as well as a paper presented at the National Workshop, of the Conference on Integrating Social Sciences and Ecosystem Management, which was held at Unicoi Lodge and Conference Center, Helen, GA, December 12-14, 1995. The overall purpose of this Conference was to improve understanding, integration, and research applications of the human dimension of ecosystem management. Specifically, the goals of the Conference and Workshop were to: (a) discuss the state of knowledge of social sciences relevant to ecosystem management, (b) discuss how to integrate this knowledge with ecosystem management (along with the physical and biological sciences), (c) develop a strategy to effectively integrate social sciences with ecosystem management, and (d) identify a research agenda to further knowledge in the area. Thus, the format of the Conference went from invited paper presentations to a combination of panel discussions, discussions with speakers, and finally, an action-oriented workshop.
