Over the past two decades, the systems, institutions, and methods of natural resource management have been under sustained intellectual and political attack (for example, Gunderson et al. 1995). The classic, utilitarian concept of natural resource management has increasingly been displaced y an approach that focuses on resources as components of adaptive systems and institutional performance as a crucial dimension of sustainable management (Eerkes & Folke 2000). The systems approach replaces the view that resources can be treated as discrete entities in isolation from the ecosystem and social and political forces, while the emphasis on institutions reflects the growing importance of understanding natural resource management as a social and political undertaking (Cortner & Moore 1999).
