Description: At a workshop in Oulanka National Park in Finland, shortly after the Finnish Wilderness Act had passed in 1991, managers and scientists wrestled with how to incorporate science into protection of wildlands of northern Finland. One working group was assigned to develop a list of "why managers don't apply the information scientists provide" and another group worked up an impressive list of "why scientists don't produce the information managers need." A third group was assigned the task of explaining why "sometimes scientific information is valuable, even if it has no immediate management application."
