Abstract : The theme of the analysis is that, although many improvements can be instituted within the present organizational framework of the Federal Government, the basic need for more integration and coordination of natural resource management and development decisions can only be achieved through substantial changes in the organization of the Government's administration. Put another way, significant managerial and policy improvements imply a significant reorganization of Federal departments and agencies. Section II considers four interrelated physical, economic, and institutional constraints on public land management: externalities, exclusionary uses, heterogeneity of public land holdings, and division of governmental responsibility. Section III considers strategic objectives of land management, and Sec. IV draws some organizational implications from the analysis of the objectives and constraints. (Author)
