SCIENCE AND THE GREATER EVERGLADES ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION: AN ASSESSMENT OF THE CRITICAL ECOSYSTEM STUDIES INITIATIVE
RECOVER LEADERSHIP TEAM
The RECOVER Leadership Team is responsible for coordinating and integrating the activities of the other six RECOVER teams and ensuring that the overall focus and direction of the implementation process remain consistent with the goals of system-wide restoration. Specifically, the leadership team's tasks include:
setting the overall priorities for RECOVER
issuing the annual report card
refining the overall vision of success for the CERP
Adaptive Assessment Team (AAT)
Create, refine, and provide documentation for a set of conceptual ecological models for the total system and for each of the major physiographic regions of south Florida
Create and refine a set of attribute-based biological performance measures for the CERP
Design and review the system-wide monitoring and data management program needed to support the CERP
Use the information coming from the system-wide monitoring program to assess actual system responses as components of the CERP and produce an annual assessment report describing and interpreting these responses
Coordinate all scientific peer reviews of RECOVER documents
Regional Evaluation Team (RET)
Review and revise the set of system-wide stressor-based performance measures
Review and revise restoration targets
Resolve technical issues pertaining to the performance measures
Coordinate with the Comprehensive Refinement Team and project delivery teams during the plan formulation and design phases of the projects, and evaluate the effects of these plans on the system as a whole
Analyze and compare the regional effects of refinements to the CERP
Refine the existing and future plan without project condition
