Contents Notes
Reporting on the state of the nation's ecosystems -- The reporting framework -- The state of the nation's ecosystems: what we know and what we don't know -- Core national indicators -- Coasts and oceans -- Farmlands -- Forests -- Fresh waters -- Grasslands and shrublands -- Urban and suburban lands. This book drafts a blueprint for periodic reporting on the condition and use of ecosystems in the U.S. Developed by experts from businesses, environmental organizations, universities, and government, it provides a succinct and comprehensive--yet scientifically sound and non-partisan--view of "how we are doing." The volume is invaluable for decision makers in government and environmental organizations, businesses, and trade associations; academics with a research or teaching interest in environmental issues; and a general public interested in the continued well-being of American ecosystems.
