This chapter discusses the principles of sustainability for successful ecosystem management of the Klamath Mountains. It defines sustainability as containing two principles: maintain the genetic potential of the land, and maintain its productivity. The chapter also suggests plans that recognize and incorporate coarse-filter approaches and fine-filter approaches. A coarse-filter approach attempts to manage ecosystem processes in a way that creates a semblance of natural conditions. The concept of the fine filter is important because it offers a more species-specific approach that catches the ecosystem elements which fall through the coarse filter.
