Description

Despite the growing popularity of the concept of ecosystem services, policy makers and practitioners continue to struggle with the challenge of translating it into practice. Drawing on a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, this volume takes up the challenge to provide a framework for the effective implementation of simple concepts into complex ecosystem related decision making. Explains methodological approaches for measuring, mapping and valuing ecosystem services, facilitating a better understanding of the concept of ecosystem services and its practical applications. Also draws on case studies from around the world, featuring application boxes to demonstrate how concepts can be implemented at different scales.
