Assessing Ecosystem Services

The BES held a workshop with the support of Defra on Assessing Ecosystem Services in the UK in December. You can read a summary of the workshop presentations and discussions at the BES website. The workshop looked at:

  • What research is needed to understand the link between ecosystem processes and services
  • What monitoring systems are needed to detect changes to ecosystem services
  • What sort of inter-disciplinary collaborations need to happen

The BES will be producing an Ecological Issues booklet on ecosystem services, so please post any comments you have on the subject of ecosystem services or on the workshop output.
