Good News for Wildlife and Ecological Sustainability
Abstract:The Committee of Scientists' report supports the contention that protecting biodiversity is vital to stewardship of our national forests. It offers an innovative, science-based approach for protecting structures, processes, and conditions to sustain wildlife and ecosystems. The panel missed opportunities to address protection of roadless areas and to call for clear implementation standards. The major challenges ahead are for the Forest Service to produce clear standards for ecosystem integrity and species viability and to establish objective methods of determining whether the standards are being met.
