Ecosystem management is a still-developing concept. The version developed for federal lands in the interior Columbia River basin region includes unreasonable assumptions and outcomes, according to SAF foresters in the region. One of ICBEMP's goals, maintaining ecosystem health and integrity, defies clear definition and quantification, and yet this overrides the goal of achieving sustainable and predictable outputs. The management alternative recommended by ICBEMP portends negative socioeconomic impacts for many communities. A less divisive approach is closer federal cooperation with states in using existing processes and standards to protect aquatic habitats.
