Description: Principles for sustainable-ecosystem management are derived by integrating fundamental, societal, and scientific premises. Ecosystem science is applied in the design of a system of management focused on building overlap between what people collectively want and what is ecologically possible. We conclude that management must incorporate more science and societal processes in the system to better inform decisions and to learn by "managing as an experiment." A management model is proposed that laces together societal values and ecological capacity.

Keywords: Sustainability, ecosystem management, sustainable development, future generations, unexpected future options, management principles, managing as an experiment, adaptive management, information as a resource, communities of interest, deversification, iterative decisionmaking, management system, the lacing model
