In our evaluation of representation approaches, we found that the WWF national gap analysis provided a coarser evaluation than did the regional indicator-based approach. In general, we believe that the two approaches are complementary: the more detailed indicator-based approach is better suited to setting regional management objectives for HCVFs, while the WWF gap analysis is well suited to determining the contribution of HCVF candidates as part of a national assessment strategy..
