Criteria and indicators for the evaluation of ecological sustainability: an integrated set for managed forests in Costa Rica



Criteria and indicators for the evaluation of ecological sustainability: an integrated set for managed forests in Costa Rica



Revista Forestal Centroamericana (34): 23-27



The evaluation of the sustainability of forest management is currently considered an integral measure for the maintenance of production, and the ecological and socioeconomic functions of forest systems. Evaluations can be achieved through the implementation of practical and scientifically founded principles, criteria, indicators and (in specific cases) verifiers (PCI&V) that evaluate the inputs, processes and results of forest management.
