“The manipulation of organismal populations, their habitats, and people to achieve specific human objectives”
“To begin with, I had to know something about the people, the country and the trees. And of the three, the first was the most important.”
“The problem of game management is not how we shall handle the deer… the real problem is one of human management. Wildlife management is comparatively easy; human management difficult.”
“Our most neglected and crucial research needs are those concerning human social behavior.”
“The challenge of understanding and clarifying stakeholders’ perspectives on [resource] management programs and issues, and systematically incorporating such insight into decision making.”

-and those who don’t know they will be affected
“Good biology is needed to set bounds on what is possible, but biology alone does not tell us what is best for the many stakeholders served by the manager.”
Decker and Enck (1996)
