5. Ecosystems are real• Well they are actually a model – but with the good and the bad AA model of the world
6. BUT, Conservation Biologists use This Model
7. They had a problem that needed to move beyond individual species at best Single species = emergency room Mass Energy and Env Affairs on flickr
8. Where did it really start
9. Yellowstone - map
10. Yellowstone – satellite
11. Yellowstone – ecosystem
12. Grizzly bear

15. Main ideas of ecosystem management• Ecosystems are multi-dimensional• Boundaries are only as real as you want them to be• Manage for overall integrity• Always collect and synthesize primary data• Engage in monitoring• Inter-Agency cooperation• Humans embedded in nature• Adaptive Management – experiment and learn• Open to organizational change as fits the system• Values are more important than facts and logic
16. Values and Goals• You get this from social, economic, and political• Most important• Not science or quantitative but drives everything

18. Keystone• Keystone species – otter• Bottom of the food chain – menhanden
19. Who are the keystones in yourecosystem?
20. Who are your menhaden?
21. Planned (some forethought) vs NaturalExperiments (need long-termmonitoring before)
22. OpenShift ExampleAdaptive management and plannedexperiments

24. What action can you turn into anexperiment?
25. Natural Experiment
26. OpenShift Example
27. What monitoring are you doing?
28. What adaptations can you make based on knowledge gained?
29. Take homes• Be more quant• Do experiments don’t just do• Take advantage of natural experiments• Manage your ecosystem for key indicators• Diversity is important• Take the analogy of ecosystems farther and learn from them
