Wisconsin's lands, waters, and wildlife have been changing in response to changing land use and development pressures. These changes are partly due to public policy and program decisions but also reflect the effects of the aggregation of myriad unplanned private and individual actions. This chapter focuses on the important influence which public policy, planning, and management interventions have on ecological systems. While science can create an informative knowledge base that helps shape the public and political opinions that lead to policy and management actions, it is the cumulative impacts of public (and private) policy and management interventions themselves that bring about change. The principal drivers of change include population growth, development levels and distribution, land use, agriculture and industrial production, energy development, and transportation and infrastructure choices.
