Title: Disturbance, Scale, and Boundary in Wilderness Management

Author: White, Peter S.; Harrod, Jonathan; Walker, Joan L.; Jentsch, Anke

Date: 2000

Source: USDA Forest Service Proceedings RMRS-P-15VOL-2.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Natural disturbances are critical to wilderness management. This paper reviews recent research on natural disturbance and addresses the problem of managing for disturbances in a world of human-imposed scales and boundaries. The dominant scale issue in disturbance management is the question of patch dynamic equilibrium. The dominant boundary issue in disturbance management is the effect. of boundary conditions on disturbance frequency and magnitude. Human property and attitudes outside wilderness areas influence management decisions on disturbances within natural areas.
