(p.198) Chapter 13 Principles of Future Sustainability
Steward's Fork

James K. Agee

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the principles of sustainability for successful ecosystem management of the Klamath Mountains. It defines sustainability as containing two principles: maintain the genetic potential of the land, and maintain its productivity. The chapter also suggests plans that recognize and incorporate coarse-filter approaches and fine-filter approaches. A coarse-filter approach attempts to manage ecosystem processes in a way that creates a semblance of natural conditions. The concept of the fine filter is important because it offers a more species-specific approach that catches the ecosystem elements which fall through the coarse filter.

Keywords:   sustainability, ecosystem management, Klamath Mountains, coarse-filter approach, fine-filter approach
