About this book

Identifies ecological indicators that can support U.S. policymaking and also be adapted to decisions at the regional and local levels. It describes indicators of land cover and productivity, species diversity, and other key ecological processes - explaining why each indicator is useful, what models support the indicator, what the measured values will mean, how the relevant data are gathered, how data collection might be improved, and what effects emerging technologies are likely to have on the measurements.
