This book responds to a congressional request to evaluated criteria by which land is acquired under the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
The committee reviews criteria and procedures by which four agencies acquire lands for conservation; examines the historic, public policy, and scientific bases of criteria and compares them with nongovernmental organizations; and assesses the effectiveness of the agencies in preserving natural resources while achieving agency objectives.
