    Description

    Guiding principles based on conservation biology are applied in assessing ecosystem needs. Ecosystem, economic, and social needs are integrated in a decision model in which the guiding principles are used as a primary filter for evaluating proposed actions. Management practices consistent with the guiding principles are likely to lead to ecological, economic, and social well being, while those practices that are not consistent with the guiding principles risk species loss, degraded environments, and long term social problems.
