Over the long term, we can expect many environmental problems to worsen. More species will be pushed closer to extinction, more toxins will enter our air, land and water, and new problems - such as acid rain, ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect - will require attention. Saying that present-day problems will grow worse is not intended to be a gloom-and-doom prophesy on our part. It is intended to be an admonition to resource managers and conservationists to develop the skills and innovative responses for handling these challenges. Topics that seem novel and complex today, such as viable population planning, cumulative effects analysis and the resolution of native claims, must be a part of the professional's tools tomorrow. -Authors
