Welcome to the Wildland Planning Glossary, an online vocabulary tool of 1400 terms useful in wildland and natural resources planning.
The glossary, published in 1976 and reprinted in 2004, remains the most comprehensive glossary of natural resources planning terminology used by resource specialists and planners around the world.
The purpose of the work is to facilitate communication between professionals, not to provide them with exhaustive vocabularies of each other's specialties. Definitions are drawn from many sources, including public laws and government manuals, but are not intended to establish legally binding definitions. A bibliography of sources is included.
This work is within the Public Domain and a complete PDF file from the original work is available for download.
Search the glossary by entering your term in the left column search box or alphabetically browse the vocabulary by using the letters in the top bar.
