International Journal of Wilderness
Wilderness has played only a minor role in peer reviewed discussions of how ecosystem management will be implemented on federal lands, even though ecosystem management will affect all lands including wilderness. This article examines relationships between the philosophies of ecosystem management and wilderness management including how wilderness managers can help in developing ecosystem management strategies. Three examples are provided on how wilderness objectives might shift under ecosystem management.
