Ecosystem Assessment of Island Based on PSR Model - A Case Study of Zhou Shan Archipelago in China

Degang Wang, Gang Shen, and Yonghua Tan
Abstract—The paper studied the change tendency of Zhou Shan Archipelago ecosystem by Pressure-State-Response (PSR) model based on the 2006–2015 Statistical Yearbooks of the study site. The paper constructs an index system used to evaluate this island ecosystem that covers the aspects of the social economy, environmental quality and ecology. Then, correlation theory analysis was used to study the main factors that affect the status of the Zhou Shan Archipelago ecosystem. The results revealed worrisome concerns related to the ecological status of the Zhou Shan Archipelago. The main concerns are generated by increased pressure from industrial wastewater discharge, emissions of pollutants into the sea and the level of economic development.

Index Terms—Islands ecosystem, PSR model, Zhou Shan archipelago.
