Abstract

If universal principles of conservation are to be discussed effectively a common understanding of standards should be established. This paper offers a vocabulary of standards and introduces a method to describe them. The paper reviews the development of standards identifying the relationship between the origin of a standard and its resultant approach. It uses pairs of keywords to describe distinctive features of standards and uses five word pairs to examine and compare national standards in the UK and China. The process of understanding standards and describing them precisely enhances efficiency through improved communication.
