Abstract
This report focuses on how ecosystem management will be implemented into public land management and how this may affect the permitting of mining operations in the western U.S. Numerous federal, state, and local agencies are considering ecosystem management as the preferred management alternative. Other sections discuss definitional problems, legal foundation for the system, activities of the federal land management agencies, activities within certain states, and finally the implications of the ecosystem management effort on mine permitting.
