Keep in mind that BLM, National Forest and National Parks can all have
*wilderness* areas that are have
stricter limits than the wider reserve.

National lands are rarely monolithic: neither landcover nor conservation
status are likely to be constant
over the entire relation or polygon.


Resource extraction is a strong distinction, and it comes in shades of
gray.  Some areas are given over
almost completely to extraction, others are reserved primarily for natural
processes.
