Abstract:



The incorporation of ecological information is probably the most critical step in making decisions about the management of natural resources. However, because of the complexity of both ecological information and its potential application to management prescriptions, it is also among the most difficult tasks facing resource managers. There has long existed a divide between researchers, who are often searching for generality among ecological relationships, and managers, who seek specific information about the systems they manage. For managers, bridging this divide is critical to preserving biological diversity, ensuring sustainability, and meeting the resource needs of an ever-expanding population. For researchers who are interested in applied ecology, bridging this divide is critical if their efforts are to move from the journal page to real world applications within the field of resource management.
