Description: The symposium identified the major barriers to collaboration among institutions and programs. This synthesis, while admittedly drawing from only a sample of the papers presented, provides a synoptic view of the major recurring themes voiced by participants.

Several overarching statements were voiced. No one institution or one program in isolation can hope to provide and integrate all of the necessary monitoring data, supporting science and information, or technology capabilities for use of decision makers. Monitoring is the unifying and integrating aspect of natural resource management. Information is the common currency for all resource stewardship activities. Agreement on basic standards for data collection and storage among institutions and programs is required to ensure access to the information and appropriate interpretation of trends. Significantly, science and active monitoring are key components of public dialog and partnership.

Keywords: monitoring, assessment, sustainability, Western Hemisphere, sustainable management, ecosystem resources
