A non-value based framework for assessing ecosystem integrity



A non-value based framework for assessing ecosystem integrity



General Technical Report Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest Service ( PNW-GTR-461): 3-20



Indicators of ecosystem state change are currently selected based on the human value for some resource (e.g., biodiversity, water quality, etc.) or the human desired end-point of a system (e.g., existence of late successional forests, lack of insect or pathogen outbreaks, etc.). Examples are used from ecosystem studies and forest certification protocols to highlight the problems of selecting indicators based on our derived values.
