The journal provides a forum for the discussion of the applied scientific development and review of traditional indicator applications as well as for theoretical, modelling and quantitative approaches such as index development.

Such assessments, in conjunction with contamination and human health risk assessments, help to evaluate the environmental hazards posed by contaminated sites and to determine remediation requirements.

a short introduction, basic features and requirements of ecological indicators are sketched. The general con- cept of ecosystem health is introduced, and examples of ecosystem health indications. INTRODUCTION. Ecological assessments and monitoring programs often rely on indicators to evaluate environmental conditions. An ecological indicator is any expression of the environment that provides quantitative information on ecological resources; it is frequently based on discrete pieces of information that reflect the status of large systems (Hunsaker and Carpenter ).Cited by: Nature conservation policy relies on ecological indicators to assess ecosystem quality and to evaluate the effectiveness of policy and management. Ecologi cal indicators are science-based Author: Esther Turnhout. The Balance of Nature? provides theoretical ecology with a rich array of questions—questions that also underpin pressing problems in practical conservation biology.
