AbstractPREFACE
The Canadian Councils of Resource Ministers developed a Biodiversity Outcomes Framework1 in 2006 to focus conservation and restoration actions under the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy.2 Canadian Biodiversity: Ecosystem Status and Trends 2010 was a first report under this framework. It assesses progress towards the framework's goal of "Healthy and Diverse Ecosystems" and the two desired conservation outcomes: i) productive, resilient, diverse ecosystems with the capacity to recover and adapt; and ii) damaged ecosystems restored.
The 22 recurring key findings that are presented in Canadian Biodiversity: Ecosystem Status and Trends 2010 emerged from synthesis and analysis of technical reports prepared as part of this project. Over 500 experts participated in the writing and review of these foundation documents. This report, Trends in permafrost conditions and ecology in northern Canada, is one of several reports prepared on the status and trends of national cross-cutting themes. It has been prepared and reviewed by experts in the field of study and reflects the views of its authors.
