The handbook describes a systematic approach to planning and conducting a 'holistic' study of selected ecosystem components and functions, which are significant with regard to energy development projects in the Western United States. Techniques of ecological systems analysis are described, and the manual explains how to build a conceptual ecosystem model and use it to plan a baseline study. A glossary of key terms and an annotated bibliography are included.
