These pages of the wiki describe the ecological indicators of marine systems, with some emphasis on the Southern Ocean.
Each page in this section of the wiki states the function, attributes, current status and trends, and management strategies and objectives for an indicator. The structure and function of all indicators on the wiki are summarised in a table with individual pages describing the indicator in more detail. This section of the wiki can be a useful tool in involving community members in the development of a suite of ecological indicators and for the discussion of new indicators.
Other resources in this space include:
- A background to indicators - what they are and how they are used
- Notes on developing and communicating indicators
- A list of active groups
- A list of acronyms
