Abstract

Public land managers are searching for frameworks for organizing and displaying social information that will make it useful in forest management and decisionmaking. On the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forests in Wisconsin, managers and researchers have used the concept of functional communities to develop such a framework. Functional communities define geographic areas in and around the Chequamegon-Nicolet where people's perceptions and use of the Forests are similar or compatible.
