Seminar: Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning with Herb Hammond

Apr 8 2009 - 3:00pm

Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning to maintain ecological integrity in the boreal forest

Presented by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and the Environmental Research & Studies Centre

Abstract

Maintaining ecological integrity requires maintaining the natural assemblages of species and ecological processes across the range of spatial and temporal scales. Natural reflects pre-industrial ecological conditions, and includes Indigenous management systems. Ecosystem-based conservation planning defines ecological limits, which are a practical application of the precautionary principle. Ecological limits constitute thresholds past which perturbations from human activities are outside of the range of natural variability. Exceeding ecological limits results in fundamental change to ecosystems, not fluctuations within ecosystem composition, structure, and function as those caused by natural disturbances. Ecological limits are defined for both physical and biological parameters. Read more about Seminar: Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning with Herb Hammond
