Summary

Thoroughly examines the impact of recreational use of backcountry wilderness and large parklands and how their adverse consequences can be limited in places where recreation and preservation of natural conditions are equally important--and often conflicting--objectives. Provides a detailed examination of the environmental changes resulting from recreational use of wildlands and the factors determining the extent of these changes. Readers will gain an understanding of why certain areas are more heavily damaged than others and the techniques which might be used to mitigate the damage. The text then links ecological aspects of wildland recreation to developing effective wildland management programs. Numerous examples illustrate how to develop a program that will solve specific problems by controlling such factors as season of use, types of recreation, and modes of travel in wildland areas. Includes an extensive bibliography.
