Description: The dialogue session was a continuation of a debate about norms and the application of normative standards to wilderness management that has taken place throughout the 1990s at national meetings and in the research literature. Researchers who have made significant contributions to the normative approach to wilderness recreation management presented three approaches to the norm problem. Doug Whittaker and Bo Shelby presented the structural norm approach, Robert Manning presented the evaluative standards and photo approach, and John Heywood presented the behavioral norm approach. Each presenter gave an overview of their approach and presented several resolutions concerning future research.

Keywords: norms, wilderness management, research, debate
