Integrating ecological information: a first step in integrating ecological management
- Department of Conservation, Wellington
The proper management of any part of New Zealand's estate requires that information from a wide range of scientific and other disciplines be taken into consideration. The identification of information with a potential contribution to any management process currently involves extensive literature searches under numerous and often obscure or seemingly unrelated topics. Such a search has little to guarantee that it is truly comprehensive.
A system of geographically based references is proposed to enable estate managers to reference all relevant information from all disciplines.
