Measuring Mitigation: A Review of the Science for Compensatory Mitigation Perfor

This report on mitigation performance standards attempts to capture the status of the peer-reviewed literature on selected biological indicators, abiotic factors, functional assessments, and developmental trajectories to help evaluate the success of compensatory mitigation within a constrained regulatory time frame. Ultimately, this report may provide the background research to help the federal agencies in their development of performance standards and monitoring guidance by 2005.
