Abstract

The faces and voices of the South have been changing dramatically over the last several decades, just like the rest of the Nation. Population growth, immigration, urbanization, expanding minority proportions, a thriving economy, rising environmental sentiments, and shifts in property ownership, among many other changes, have put forest and wildlife management in a much different context than at any time in the region's history. This paper examines the changing social, economic, attitudinal, and other voices of southerners and speculates about the meaning these changing voices might have on the future of forest and wildlife management in the South.
