Reviews and Testimonials
Environmental scientists and other researchers present a decision support system related to environment and land use that will enable policy makers to integrate knowledge from the regional and local level into the decision making process, while also encouraging local people to maintain and restore biodiversity ecosystem services. They argue that the Internet offers the best way to implement the Convention on Biological Diversity commitments on local knowledge, monitoring, and governance to adaptive management of biodiversity resources.

Recommended- Overall, this book presents the TESS project and provides an extended and thorough analysis for the design of the DSS targeted to environmental and land use management for biodiversity maintenance and restoration. The primary and secondary results of the several studies contacted at various levels of administration are properly presented and discussed in the 23 chapters. The design of the DSS follows appropriate modeling techniques and information management processes. This book could be useful for figuring out the environmental administration in Europe, and also, how this information is interpreted and incorporated in a multifaceted DSS.
