DescriptionLong-term ecological monitoring is becoming increasingly important but more challenging to fund. Lindenmayer and Likens describe the common characteristics of successful monitoring programs and of those that fail. They draw upon their monitoring experiences together, independently, and from a variety of other long-term monitoring programs around the world. They then use these characteristics to "present a new paradigm--Adaptive Monitoring" by putting the characteristics into a logical framework. The target audience is broad, including researchers, resource managers, and policy-makers. As a result, the book is easy to read and provides numerous examples while avoiding technical jargon.
