Abstract or Summary
  • This paper offers a framework for use by public and private entities who manage natural resources. It focuses on the maintenance and restoration of ecological integrity to help ensure that natural systems continue to provide intrinsic value and benefits to human communities. The ecological integrity measures assess four different attributes of natural systems: landscape features, habitat characteristics, representative and at risk species. Intact natural systems generally support a broader range of benefits to people than altered systems.
