DescriptionThe anticipated changes in human populations, natural ecosystems, and the global climate are expected to impact public lands management. Land use is expected to shift due to altered productivity of local ecosystems, to overall increased human population, and to the changing market interests and cultural values. In rural areas, these demographic trends may result in the expansion of the wildland urban interface into previously undeveloped areas for amenity communities, and conversely, to departure from communities dependent on natural resource-supported economies. A recent science synthesis on climate emphasizes the importance of human responses to future opportunities and constraints:
