Summary

An assessment is given in this chapter of the politically realistic EMT developed in this book. It contains an account of the EMT’s current capabilities for finding politically realistic ecosystem management plans that also reach conservation goals for that ecosystem. Such plans are referred to in the book as Most Practical Ecosystem Management Plans (MPEMPs). The chapter describes the current limitations of the EMT that need to be addressed to make the EMT more effective at finding such plans. It discusses changes in the politics of wildlife management and changes in how wildlife management professionals are trained that, if enacted, would enhance the EMT’s effectiveness. The chapter also presents some anticipated consequences of using a politically realistic EMT.
