From the text ... 'Wilderness areas are planned and managed as part of the entire Service land unit with appropriate management to comply with the Wilderness Act, and in Alaska, the Alaska National Interests Lands Conservation Act. The Service has long recognized that ecosystems and their components do not recognize administrative boundaries. Therefore, a holistic management strategy is applied to the Service land unit where wilderness has been designated, or where an area has been identified as a study area or recommended for inclusion within the Wilderness Preservation System.'
