LEA is a biodiversity credit system for trading endangered species habitat designed to minimize and reverse the negative effects of habitat loss and fragmentation, the leading cause of species endangerment in the United States. It is related to Habitat Equivalency Analysis, a method used in Natural Resource Damage Assessment, but which in depending on weighted area metrics, is weak in valuing landscape pattern or processes.
