Abstract

The authors propose an alternative model for environmental education in natural resources with emphasis on a complete systems approach. The model focuses on helping people evaluate and understand natural resources based on underlying ecological principles. This model integrates a broad array of life and physical sciences in addition to sociology, political science, history, government, and communication and provides a context for understanding ecological concepts, natural resource systems, and environmental issues.
