One of the critical issues of our time is the planet's dwindling capacity to provide life support for a large and growing human population. Managing for Healthy Ecosystems identifies key issues that must be resolved if there is to be progress in this complex area. It investigates evolving methods for regional ecosystem health assessment, issues and methods for assessing, monitoring, and managing diversity, and presents case studies that show practical approaches to integrating the socio-economic, ecological, and human health implications of environmental degradation. The wide spectrum of information and transdisciplinary focus provided will be invaluable to environmental resource managers and researchers.
