Author: Knotek, Katie;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Federal land managers and the public engage in many decisions about stewardship of wilderness in the United States, including decisions about stewardship of fire. To date, social science research lacks a holistic examination of the decision-making context of managers and the public about stewardship of fire inside wilderness and across its boundaries. A conceptual model is presented to guide research on this decision-making context, with emphasis placed on social influences on public and manager decision making.
Keywords: wilderness, fires, decision making, social values, wildland urban interface (WUI), knowledge, public trust, place attachment
