Land Classification--Where Do We Go from Here?
Land classification systems provide means of aggregating large amounts of information, and of extrapolating research results and management experience among units with similar properties. The dilemma for the future is that while land classification is becoming more complex and there is urgent need for coordination, no single approach can serve all purposes. Recommendations for future directions include continued research to develop applicable systems, emphasis on hierarchical approaches and use of natural biosphere components as a basic underpinning, development of new ways to use a number of systems simultaneously, and continued emphasis on communication mechanisms.
