Event Description

Resource managers must monitor ecologically appropriate indicators to effectively evaluate the performance of their activities and to guide adaptive management. To support indicator monitoring efforts, we developed a set of ecological condition and ecosystem service indicators for five ecosystems in the Gulf using an ecological resilience framework. With input from ecosystem experts, we created conceptual ecological models that identify the drivers, stressors, major ecological factors and their key ecological attributes. Using the models as a guide, we identified indicators, metrics and assessment points that will allow monitoring programs to better gauge ecological condition and ecosystem service provision. This work can be used directly by resource managers and restoration practitioners to guide and evaluate the performance of their efforts.

Webinar co-sponsored by the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and OpenChannels.org) and MEAM.
