Title: A special issue of the Journal of Forestry - Wilderness science and its role in wilderness stewardship

Author: Fox, Susan F.;

Date: 2016

Source: Journal of Forestry. 114(3): 287.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)


This special issue of the Journal of Forestry provides an overview of America’s National Wilderness Preservation System and highlights the important role that science serves in informing wilderness stewardship. The lead authors of the articles in this volume selected the Journal because it is highly respected and widely circulated among foresters and federal land managers in the various natural resource agencies that manage wilderness across the nation. But many in America value wilderness, and we know this issue will be appreciated by all who hold these lands dear. We applaud the generosity of the editors of the Journal in agreeing to focus an entire issue on wilderness since the Journal usually focuses on more traditional forestry issues.

Keywords: wilderness, wilderness science, wilderness stewardship, National Wilderness Preservation System
