DescriptionIn this investigation, we adapted identity theory to reassess place attachment, a multidimensional concept with cognitive, affective, and conative elements. We hypothesized that the cognitive component--place identity--is an antecedent of the affective and conative facets of place attachment. We empirically tested this reconceptualization using data from a wildland-urban interface survey conducted in San Diego (n = 729) and Los Angeles (n = 929), CA. Analyses of both data sets provided strong support for our reconceptualization of the place attachment construct and its associated measures. We suggest that identification processes are a driver of other affective and conative elements of place attachment, rather than existing on the same temporal plane.
