In the last two decades federal and state governments have become in creasingly preoccupied with classi fying public lands according to the uses that may be made of them. One outcome of the classifying can be a change in the land's legal status from one in which any use is tolerated to one in which only selected activities are allowed. Since such a change af fects the economic and recreational opportunities of individuals and in stitutions, a variety of interest groups have developed to follow and influ ence the classifying process. Perhaps nowhere has the process been more closely scrutinized or more hotly de bated than in Alaska, where land-use decisions for much of the state's 375 million acres are being made.
