Ecosystem management requires a planning and decision-making process that places land use in its appropriate ecological context. Because ecological assessments must be conducted at various spatial scales and across jurisdictional boundaries, approaches to assessment must be compatible and consistent with each other. A "Guidebook for Integrated Ecological Assessments" analyzes methods and provides standards and protocols for assessment and the integration of data.
