Author: McRae, T.; Hillary, N.; MacGregor, R. J.; Smith, C. A. S.
Abstract: This paper reviews some basic principles of environmental indicator design and summarizes work underway in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) to develop agri-environmental indicators (AEIs) for Canadian agriculture. Concepts and applications of environmental indicators are reviewed in section 2, the approach being pursued by AAFC to develop AEIs is presented in section 3 and examples of results achieved to date are identified in section 4. The paper concludes with some general points concerning the implications of the work on AEIs to ecological monitoring and assessment.
