A number of important items have been highlighted, such as: The major objective of the Dutch environmental policy (sustainable development) ; multiple forms of landuse and the definition of a frame of reference ; the use of both abiotic and biotic parameters as tools to characterize environmental quality ; choce of appropriate spacial scale ; the ability to relate environmental policies to changes in parameters. General conclusion is that the AMOEBE apprach forms a useful method to quantify environmental quality, provided some adaptions will be made.
