Monitoring Ecological Condition at Regional Scales : Proceedings of the Third Symposium on the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP), Albany, NY, U.S.A., April 8-11, 1997
Chapter topics include causal relationships, landscape ecology, carrying capacity and sustainability, statistical issues in large-scale surveys, and approaches to integrating data from multiple scales and media. Publication of these proceedings is intended to facilitate the development and application of techniques for ecologically-based assessments of environmental condition in the US and abroad.
