Informing and Guiding Stewardship

Ecosystems comprise the entirety of biological and abiotic elements within a system. Far from static features of the landscape, healthy ecosystems support dynamic processes and functions that permit self-regulation and ultimately benefit humankind through the delivery of services. Where this self-regulatory capability has been compromised, the complexity of interactions between and within populations, communities and other key ecosystem elements represents a challenge to managers seeking to develop options for encouraging effective stewardship. Drawing on experience obtained in a wide variety of systems, Biological Conservation provides a broad range of services benefiting the science and planning needs of organizations charged with stewardship of terrestrial, aquatic, estuarine, or marine systems.
