Assessing the success of off-reserve forest management in contributing to biodiversity conservation.

National reserve systems of protected areas have emerged as the foundation of strategies for biodiversity conservation. Recognition that protected areas do not function as islands isolated from their broader environments emphasizes the complementary role of off-reserve management in achieving biodiversity conservation objectives. The success of off-reserve forest management cannot therefore be judged in isolation from the broader context of its joint contribution, with that of the reserve system, to the achievement of conservation objectives. This assessment is best made on a bio-regional basis. Indicators of the success of off-reserve forest management will thus differ from those of forest management within reserves in so far as the off-reserve forests play different roles in meeting bio-regional conservation objectives. Principles from which such indicators might be developed are: (1) a bio-regional basis for conservation planning; (2) agreement and clear articulation of conservation objectives; (3) assessment of landscape-scale functionality and process; (4) assessment of landscape- and stand-level recovery potential; (5) agreement of the framework within which indicators are formulated; and (6) the capacity for data collection by a range of interested parties.
