Title: Values, Ethics, and Attitudes Toward National Forest Management: An Empirical Study

Author: Manning, Robert; Valliere, William; Minteer, Ben;

Date: 1999

Source: Society and Natural Resources 12(5): 421-436

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This study measures environmental values and ethics and explores their relationships to attitudes toward national forest management. The principal research methods were literature review and a survey of Vermont residents concerning management of the Green Mountain National Forest. Descriptive findings suggest respondents (1) favor nonmaterial values of national forests, (2) subscribe to a diversity of environmental ethics, including anthropocentric and bio-/ecocentric, and (3) support emerging concepts of ecosystem management. Environmental values and ethics explain approximately 60% of the variation in attitudes toward national forest management.

Keywords: environmental ethics, environmental values, national forests
