This book has focused on assessing and interpreting the past century and a half of ecological change in the specific context of one state—Wisconsin. This chapter first describes what makes Wisconsin unique, as well as what makes it typical. It then discusses the nature of cumulative effects; the growing importance of ecological monitoring; the need for ecologists to share their research results with the broader public and decision makers; and how to best educate people about the large and complex web of environmental and ecological crises.

Keywords:   Wisconsin, ecological change, ecological monitoring, ecological crises
