The scheme also allows us to assess conservation status using criteria tailored to the distinct dynamics and spatial patterns of biodiversity of different ecosystem types. The conservation assessment integrates two fundamental data layers: conservation status and biological distinctiveness. To assess the conservation status of ecoregions, we adapted the Red Data Book approach used by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) for species. We conducted a snapshot conservation assessment of ecoregions to classify them as either Extinct (completely converted), Critical, Endangered, Vulnerable, Relatively Stable, or Relatively Intact.

The integration model based on these two layers identifies priorities and suggests the timing and sequence of investment and the level of effort required to conserve biodiversity. The matrix and decision rules presented can help guide governments and donors in preventing complete degradation and conversion in the most threatened regions. Such investments may be quite expensive. The matrix also identifies the most intact examples of biologically outstanding ecoregions with the best chance for long-term persistence and the highest potential for cost-effective investments.
