Description: Integral to maintaining wilderness quality is the implementation of ecological, social, and management standards. A substantial body of wilderness research management experience exists nationwide as a common-pool resource for professionals with a specialized interest in incorporating standards into planning processes. In a 2-day interactive workshop, wilderness managements and researchers joined together to assess the current use of standards, summarize and integrate what has been learned, capitalize on the diversity of this work, and develop ideas about directions for the future. The 14 papers in this proceedings represent their collaborative efforts.

Keywords: Wilderness management, wilderness standards, management objectives, environmental impacts, environmental indicators, monitoring
