Significant change occurs to the ecosystem. When unexpected significant change occurs to an ecosystem, management goals and objectives for the system must be reevaluated. Such catastrophic changes are referred to as surprise events by Holling (1978) and can be better predicted through monitoring programs designed to account for uncertainty. Large-scale fire is an example of a significant ecosystem process that can greatly alter the vegetation patterns of an area. If such process-pattern relations are not explicitly addressed in planning documents, integrated ecological assessments may be triggered by such surprise events.
