The term ecosystem has been widely adopted outside its original domain in biology, for example in business and engineering studies. Ecosystem health is a derivative metaphor used to describe the success of the ecosystem. In this paper, we describe the key shortcomings of ecosystem health research. We put forward two key postulates of ecosystem health. Based on these postulates we present a research agenda for ecosystem health.
