Abstract : The SERDP Ecosystem Management Project (SEMP) implemented three indicator studies and two threshold studies but had no formal plan for integration. SERDP funded this project in order to evaluate the data collected by those five components and begin to integrate them. The purpose of the integration was to focus the results of the research and monitoring programs on complementing Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan (INRMP) and improving environmental management of Fort Benning. Ultimately, the lessons learned at Fort Benning may provide an example of how to improve environmental monitoring and management of DOD installations in general. This work focused on indicators at the plot level. However, indicators at the watershed and landscape level were considered by the Technical Advisory Committee to be a part of integration and since those type of studies were part of other SEMP projects lead by Virginia Dale and Pat Mulholland, the highlights of those results are reported in the conclusions.
