Research Topics:

The applicant may choose to discuss a subject relevant to current programs of The Wilderness Society. It may apply to a particular landscape or it may address issues broadly. The following themes are suggested research topics:

  • Management impacts on wildland ecosystems: A question like how do roads affect ecosystem function and what roles should roadless areas play in protecting ecosystem integrity, what are the ecological and social impacts of grazing in wildland ecosystems, and what can be done to protect wildland ecosystems from biological invasion are examples.
  • Valuing wildlands: Topics include how wildland protection contributes to rural economic health and the design of policies and programs to help rural communities leverage the economic value of protecting wildland ecosystems.
  • Connecting people to wildlands: The contributions of wilderness to public health and well-being, particularly for residents of metropolitan areas, are possible topics under this heading.
  • Impacts of climate change: Potential research questions include: what are the terrestrial and aquatic impacts of climate change on wilderness areas and wilderness resources, what is the relationship between wildland fire, carbon emissions/sequestration, and climate change, what are the economic effects of climate change on wildland ecosystem services such as water quality and quantity, and what are the implications of climate change for wilderness management? The research paper should address an aspect of the establishment, protection or management of wilderness.
