DescriptionNOTE large file size. This paper describes a prototype system for research planning and administration to meet man's needs for forest vegetation in and around metropolitan areas. The system's components involve social needs or services, technological developments, environmental effects, and the locales where the services, developments, and environmental effects occur. The system is organized from three different perspectives-a social-need viewpoint, a supply-response viewpoint, and an environmental-effect view-point. A series of diagrams are presented that show, for each of the three viewpoints, how to formulate and evaluate problems suggested by combinations of various components in the system.
