Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Maja Vinde Folkersen Alternative ecosystem valuation methodology can inform policy choices to better reflect local needs, improve living standards and facilitate more effective climate change adaptation strategies. In the context of the South Pacific Island Countries and their reliance on marine resources, this paper outlines the urgent need for exploring alternative ecosystem valuation methodology. The objective behind alternative ecosystem valuation methodology is to enable a more comprehensive...
Non-monetary valuation using Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis: Sensitivity of additive aggregation methods to scaling and compensation assumptions
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): D.M. Martin, M. Mazzotta Analytical methods for Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) support the non-monetary valuation of ecosystem services for environmental decision making. Many published case studies transform ecosystem service outcomes into a common metric and aggregate the outcomes to set land use planning and environmental management priorities. Analysts and their stakeholder constituents should be cautioned that results may be sensitive to the methods that are chosen to perform the...
Surveying views on Payments for Ecosystem Services: Implications for environmental management and research
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Kerry J. Waylen, Julia Martin-Ortega The concept of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) is globally of increasing interest. However, little is known about the views and expectations of professionals and practitioners expected to enable or implement this concept. Since these individuals design, select, shape and deliver environmental management, their views and expectations are critical to understanding how PES may play out in practice. Using the first survey on this topic, in the UK this...
Consumer demand for urban forest ecosystem services and disservices: Examining trade-offs using choice experiments and best-worst scaling
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): José R. Soto, Francisco J. Escobedo, Hayk Khachatryan, Damian C. Adams Many studies value urban ecosystem service benefits using residents’ willingness to pay and supply-side analyses of ecosystem attributes. But, few studies account for consumer demand and ecosystem disservices. To address this gap we surveyed 1052 homeowners eliciting consumer demand for key urban forest ecosystem attributes and service-disservice levels in both their properties and surrounding neighborhood. We use an...
Economic viability of the national-scale forestation program: The case of success in the Republic of Korea
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Jongyeol Lee, Chul-Hee Lim, Gang Sun Kim, Anil Markandya, Sarwat Chowdhury, Sea Jin Kim, Woo-Kyun Lee, Yowhan Son The forests in the Republic of Korea (ROK) successfully recovered through the national forestation program as did the ecosystem services associated with them. With this positive experience, it is instructive to investigate the economic viability of the forestation program. In this study, we estimated the changes in the key ecosystem services (disaster risk reduction (DRR...
Improving payments for ecosystem services (PES) outcomes through the use of Multi-Criteria Evaluation (MCE) and the software OPTamos
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Nelson Grima, Simron J. Singh, Barbara Smetschka The Earth’s ecosystems provide society with basic goods and services, but this ecosystem provision of benefits is constantly under threat by anthropogenic pressures, mainly related to land use changes. A solution proposed to address these issues is the implementation of Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes. However, such schemes have received strong criticism, which suggests that there is a need for improvement. The paper discusses the...

A new perspective on valuating marine climate regulation: The Israeli Mediterranean as a case study
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Yoav Peled, Shiri Zemah Shamir, Mordechai Shechter, Eyal Rahav, Alvaro Israel Marine climate regulation, the absorption and deposition of atmospheric carbon in the marine environment, is considered a valuable ecosystem service. Past valuations of this ecosystem service neglected to account for its temporal context, either by equating it with primary productivity, an underlying ecosystem process, or disregarded the temporal aspects related to its supply, thus leading to inaccurate...
Disaggregating ecosystem service values and priorities by wealth, age, and education
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Jacqueline D. Lau, Christina C. Hicks, Georgina G. Gurney, Joshua E. Cinner Ecosystem services support the livelihoods and wellbeing of millions of people in developing countries. However, the benefits from ecosystem services are rarely, if ever, distributed equally within communities. Little work has examined whether and how socio-economic characteristics (e.g. age, poverty, education) are related to how people value and prioritize ecosystem services. We interviewed 372 people connected to...
Environmental justice and ecosystem services: A disaggregated analysis of community access to forest benefits in Nepal
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Sunita Chaudhary, Andrew McGregor, Donna Houston, Nakul Chettri The concept of ecosystem services is influencing how environmental stakeholders pursue dual conservation and community development goals. While rapidly growing in popularity, the ecosystem services approach has been criticized for adopting a homogenous approach to communities and failing to consider social diversity and associated power structures influencing access to benefits. In this paper, we adopt an environmental justice...
Analysing the impacts of PES programmes beyond economic rationale: Perceptions of ecosystem services provision associated to the Mexican case
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Rodrigo Arriagada, Adrián Villaseñor, Eliana Rubiano, David Cotacachi, Judith Morrison Payments for Ecosystem Services programmes represent an important conservation policy worldwide. Despite their popularity, there is still a shortage of evidence regarding whether or not these schemes improve quality of life and generate desired behavioural changes. In this paper, we use a dataset from participants that enrolled in a conservation program on 2007, and from non-participants in the same...
Not so biocentric – Environmental benefits and harm associated with the acceptance of forest management objectives by future environmental professionals
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Brent D. Matthies, Annukka Vainio, Dalia D'Amato It is not yet completely clear how individuals weigh positive and negative consequences of specific environmental actions to the self, others and nature, and how these evaluations are associated with the acceptance of such environmental actions. We explored how the acceptance of ecosystem service-related forest management objectives were associated with perceived positive and negative consequences, perceived knowledge of these objectives, and...
The impact of relative individual ecosystem demand on stacking ecosystem credit markets
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Marzieh Motallebi, Dana L. Hoag, Ali Tasdighi, Mazdak Arabi, Deanna L. Osmond, Randall B. Boone A blended actual and hypothetical vertical ecosystem services stacking scenario is developed for a water quality trading (WQT) program in North Carolina. Demand is estimated for total nitrogen reduction and simulated for total phosphorous reduction. Nitrogen and phosphorus are complementary pollutants jointly produced by a single conservation practice, riparian buffers. The supply of reduction...

With the dual aim of creating an overview how the different services are measured in the studies, and determining if...
The use of sociocultural valuation in sustainable environmental management
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): A. Ruiz-Frau, T. Krause, N. Marbà The integration of sociocultural valuations (SCV) within an ecosystem services (ES) framework is increasingly being required in environmental management contexts. Yet, this raises important questions: how do we approach SCV when people’s perceptions are based on unbalanced information and advocate for detrimental actions? How then should SCV results be used? Should they be used to steer decisions? We use an example from a SCV of ES provided by seagrass...
“Transplanetary” perspective of cultural ecosystem services – Extending Dickinson and Hobbs (2017)’s definitions, characteristics and challenges of cultural services’ research
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Ana Sofia Vaz, Helena Santos In their review, Dickinson and Hobbs (2017) ensemble a set of critiques on the notion, characteristics, and challenges of cultural ecosystem services (CES) and respective research. Concurrently, Costanza et al. (2017) provide a throughout overview on the last “Twenty years of ecosystem services”. Inspired by their narratives, we advance thought on the existence of further challenges in CES research, relating with the possibility that space missions motivate...
A framework for integrating systematic stakeholder analysis in ecosystem services research: Stakeholder mapping for forest ecosystem services in the UK
01. Februar 2018
Publication date: February 2018 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 29, Part A Author(s): Susanne Raum The concept of ecosystem services offers a useful framework for the systematic assessment of the multiple benefits ecosystems deliver. However, the anthropogenic focus of the concept also requires a detailed understanding of the stakeholders interested in the goods and services ecosystems provide. Indeed, linking ecosystem services to stakeholders and systematically mapping their potential stakes in these is essential for effective, equitable and sustainable ecosystem governance and...
