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

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 are defined for both physical and biological parameters. Read More
