Integrating Science and Community in Prince William Sound

The University of Arizona Press

Twenty-eight scientists and managers and thirteen local community residents address what has come to be a central paradox in public lands management: the need to accommodate increasing human use while reducing the environmental impact of those activities. This volume draws on diverse efforts and perspectives to dissect this paradox, offering an alternative approach where human use is central to sustaining wildlands and recovering a damaged ecosystem like Prince William Sound.
