Filling 10 key gaps in U.S. ecosystem data could double the number of indicators of ecosystem conditions in the nation and improve environmental decision-making, according to a report released 13 June by the nonprofit Heinz Center for Science, Economics, and the Environment.
The gaps identified by the Heinz committee, which was comprised of representatives from government, industry, academia, and nonprofit organizations, fell under the following categories: landscape pattern/remote sensing analysis; contaminants related to human exposure; nitrogen yield and load in rivers; carbon storage/soil organic matter; stream and riparian condition; groundwater levels; extent of specific key habitat elements; at-risk species and communities; non-native species; and biological community conditions.
