Abstract


  • Suites of criteria specifying ecological, biological, social, economic, and

    governance properties enable the systematic identification of sites and networks of high

    biodiversity value, and can support balancing ecological and socioeconomic objectives of

    biodiversity conservation in terrestrial and marine spatial planning. We describe designs of

    suites of ecological, governance and socioeconomic criteria to comprehensively cover

    manifestations of biodiversity, from genotypes to biomes; compensate for taxonomic and

    spatial gaps in available datasets; balance biases resulting from conventionally-employed

    narrow criteria suites focusing on rare, endemic and threatened species; plan for climate

    change effects on biodiversity; and optimize the ecological and administrative networking

    of sites. Representativeness, replication, ecological connectivity, size, and refugia are

    identified as minimum ecological properties of site networks. Through inclusion of a

    criterion for phylogenetic distinctiveness, criteria suites identify sites important for

    maintaining evolutionary processes. Criteria for focal species are needed to overcome data
