Future Directions

Making informed decisions on preserving biodiversity and sustainable environments in spite of pollution, eutrophica-tion, and climate change is of vital importance for the habitat Earth in the twenty-first century. Ecological informatics is challenged to contribute ecological understanding and tools for integrating, analyzing, and synthesizing the wealth of ecological knowledge and data for making an informed decision at local, regional, and global scale.

It is anticipated that at the next stage ecological informatics will distinctively focus on: (1) integrated
