sound ecological environment

a sound ecological environment is one that:

  • sustains the full complement of native species in perpetuity,
  • sustains key habitat features required by these species,
  • retains key features of the natural flow regime required by these species to complete their lifecycles, and,
  • sustains key ecosystem processes and services, such as elemental cycling and the productivity of¬†important plant and animal populations.
