Potential value of indicator species for conservation and management of New Zealand terrestrial communities

, : Potential value of indicator species for conservation and management of New Zealand terrestrial communities. Science for Conservation ( 109): 90 pp.

The use of indicator species is reviewed within a context of the need for broader understanding of biological systems and the effects of management on biodiversity. Current theory and practice is used to evaluate approaches to the knowledge gaps that exist. It is concluded that the understanding needed to guide appropriate land management requires the integrated study of communities and systems in order to derive the basic principles operating.
