|Title:||Mapping Ecosystem Services|
|Authors:||BURKHARD Benjamin; MAES JOACHIM|
|Abstract:||Ecosystem services are the contributions of ecosystem structure and function (in combination with other inputs) to human well-being. That means, humankind is strongly dependent on well-functioning ecosystems and natural capital that are the base for a constant flow of ecosystem services from nature to society. Therefore ecosystem services have the potential to become a major tool for policy and decision making on global, national, regional and local scales. Possible applications are manifold: from sustainable management of natural resources, land use optimisation, environmental protection, nature conservation and restoration, landscape planning, nature-based solutions, climate protection, disaster risk reduction to environmental education and research. With this textbook about theory, methods, and practical applications of ecosystem services mapping, we bring together valuable knowledge and techniques from leading experts in the field.|
