Drivers of Change

(Direct & Indirect) Any natural or human-induced factor that directly or indirectly causes a change in the structure or function of an ecosystem. A direct driver of change unequivocally influences ecosystem structure or processes and can therefore be identified and measured to differing degrees of accuracy. An indirect driver operates by altering the strength of impact of one or more direct drivers.
