The conceptual models were compiled by researchers in collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders from Natural Resource Management groups, universities and government agencies and based on available scientific information[1].

Note: While included within these models, rainforests are not wetlands.

Management and rehabilitation of rainforest needs to be considered in the context of the overall ecosystem services provided by the rainforest and enhancing one aspect must be balanced with the other objectives involved in managing the rainforest.

Note: the above does not include management actions on land surrounding the rainforest and the broader landscape. Management of farm practices, stormwater and wastewater flows, treatment systems, and other catchment activities can also reduce the impacts of nutrients on rainforests.
