Research, politics, and resource management decisions: a case study of river research in Grand Canyon

Research, politics, and resource management decisions: a case study of river research in Grand Canyon

Leisure Sciences 4(3): 281-296

The literature on research utilization and policy making suggests that decision processes involve both rational, intellectual analysis and social or political interaction. Several writers suggested that this relationship also exists in the recreation and resource management fields, but few studies treat the issue explicitly. This paper presents a case study of river research in Grand Canyon National Park.
