From the text ... 'Ecosystem management includes biological, social, cultural, and economic values. Ecosystem management attempts to sustain these values across landscapes by managing biological issues in both large and small landscapes with the emphasis on retaining ecological integrity and all community elements. Human goals are considered an integral part of this approach. However, human goals must pass the test of sustainability. Can those human goals that encompass use of natural resources be sustained indefinitely and without extensive input? Further, do human goals degrade the resource over time?'
