Description: The 50th Anniversary of the U.S. Wilderness Act is a cause for celebration, not least of which is the scientific use recognized in Section 4(b) of the act. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of publication of the International Journal of Wilderness (IJW). IJW plays a unique role in wilderness stewardship, science, and advocacy, providing a forum for presentation and discussion of important questions, challenges, and opportunities. But wilderness provides unique opportunities for science, and IJW provides an equally useful international venue for scientists interested in establishing a dialogue with managers and interested publics.

Keywords: wilderness science, U.S. Wilderness Act
