Comprehensive conservation planning in Canadian boreal regions
(2010-05-10) Published in the scientific journal Biological Conservation (authors: DW Schindler and PG Lee). In a water-scarce world, there is increasing pressure to divert and exploit boreal freshwaters, and devising conservation plans to protect boreal freshwaters and their catchments is urgent. We propose a catchment-based approach that includes water and chemical mass-balances as a sensitive means of detecting early degradation of many ecosystem services in both catchments and freshwaters.
