Buy Article:


Q factor analysis and cluster analysis data demonstrate a high level of homogeneity among USDA Forest Service district rangers resembling that found by Kaufman in the 1950s, suggesting a current organizational culture committed primarily to one constituency group rather than the multiple constituencies implied by the Multiple Use-Sustained Yield Act. Such strong commitment to a single-constituency perspective may preclude agency sensitivity to other public perspectives obtained through citizen participation. Organization theory and social institutions theory are used to explain the findings. For. Sci. 34(2):474-486.
