Environmental report cards: A tool for better management, monitoring, and research
Environmental report cards are an important tool for integrating assessments of ecosystem health and for communicating scientific understanding to decision-makers and the general public. This poster won a prize in the public poster category at the recent Land Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) conference in Cape Town, South Africa. It describes the impact that effective environmental report cards can have on management, monitoring, and research, as well as detailing the five step process used to develop a report card.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
