Description: The National Wilderness Preservation System (NWPS) is a vital component of the national and international infrastructure for science, education, and information. The NWPS serves as an important resource for advancing research, from discovering new dinosaurs (Arbour et al. 2014, Landon 2016) to understanding human history on the American landscape (Rasic 2003). The NWPS provides invaluable records of environmental change and coverage of important types of ecosystems and natural resource systems (Aycrigg et al. 2016).
