be tested and refined through well-conceived research in which the protected ecosystems are compared with those characterized by human disturbance. Excellent potential exists for the emergence of new ideas.

Furthermore, the long-range proposal for the DMZ may stimulate the development of a center for ecosystem science at the Seoul National University, the consequence of which may be a broad scientific foundation for adjusting human populations in Korea to their natural resources.
