Abstract:Increasingly complicated planning requirements have brought about a renewed interest in land and resource classification. While classification for a single purpose may be relatively easy, providing a system which is suited for several purposes is a complex undertaking. Before we can effectively address the dilemma of unifying classification systems, we must improve understanding of what is involved and provide for effective communication. Foresters, because of their multiple-use management responsibilities on wildlands, are in a strong position to take the lead in developing common approaches to the classification problem.
