Recreation Resources Management and Tourism

Research in this area has centered on (1) the resource, its current use, and its potential for use; (2) managerial practices, policies, and their implications for the resource and its users; and (3) potentials for resource-based tourism. Fundamental to these efforts is research to aid the understanding of conflicts that arise among resource user groups. Particular emphasis has been placed on identifying roles of governments (local, state, and federal) and of special interest groups in affecting planning and resource use.
