"Protected area managers need to monitor the ecological effects of visitor use and assess their performance in managing visitor use. To assist this process STCRC has established a series of projects to develop indicators and protocols for monitoring visitor use and its impacts that can be used as part of an integrated monitoring system for protected areas. This report is one in a series examining terrestrial ecological impacts of visitor use."
