An ecosystem approach is the application of appropriate science to determine ecological functions of a system [as opposed to a single species] to ensure appropriate and sustainable use in a balanced and equitable way. (United Nations Convention on Biodiversity)
“Our goal at 8Trees Inc. is to renew an ecosystem approach in applied field ecology. Our priorities are to mentor biologists and technicians in this method and continue to provide expert advice, stewardship, outreach and educational opportunities when they arise. We are also focusing on research and development of biological tools for field applications.”
The key our success is maintaining a thorough understanding of the scientific research, governing policies and land owner goals when developing unique approaches to land management and habitat restoration.
A well balanced ecosystem approach provides a positive future for the ecological system. This is important so that future generations can enjoy what we have today.
"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise." -Aldo Leopold
