From the text: 'In this concluding chapter, therefore, we try to put these Greater Yellowstone developments in perspective. We begin by identifying the principal conflicts involved in this transition to an ecosystem-based management policy in Greater Yellowstone. Next, we undertake a critical examination of current ecosystem management initiatives, focusing on the existing institutional structures, the role of science, and the influence of public values Finally, we offer some tentative observations about the future of ecosystem management in Greater Yellowstone and elsewhere.'
