Human Values in Recreation Management
Expressions of human values for wildlands are diverse and sometimes discordant.
This is true whether the values in question are held by the users or the managers
of wildland resources. A primary interest addressed in my research is to document
ways in which human value concerns may be addressed through integrated management
and regional planning technologies, with special focus on recreation resources.
Other research continues into the sociology of recreation behavior, especially studies
of cross-cultural meanings, as well as studies to further refine social research
methods applicable to problem solving within the human ecosystem-management context.
