Forest ecosystem integrity maps
Not all forests are equal, and the benefits they provide us vary according to their ecosystem integrity. The concept of ecosystem integrity provides a science-based framework for assessing, mapping, and reporting on forest condition and therefore to identify forests that have higher/lower values, provide more/less benefits and are at relatively greater/lesser risk of loss.
We will continue to develop approaches to mapping and assessing different components and indicators of ecosystem integrity including:
- forest stability;
- forest maturity;
- forest ecosystem carbon stocks; and
- forest policy.
