Abstract:A framework was developed to set forth the relationship of science to management for the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project. It incorporates a general planning model that has four iterative steps: monitoring, assessment, decisionmaking, and implementation. In this effort we recognized that people are part of ecosystems and that stewardship must resolve the challenge of how to meet multiple demands with finite resources. Science helps decisionmakers choose among options for dynamic systems, but the real challenge is determining whose values will influence land management.
