01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Nguyen Thi Kim Quyen, Håkan Berg, Wenresti Gallardo, Chau Thi Da This study identifies stakeholders’ perceptions of ecosystem services (ESS) along the Mekong River in Vietnam. It evaluates trade-offs made between ESS under different Pangasius catfish development scenarios, and stakeholders’ preferences to these scenarios. The study was conducted through interviews, focus group discussions and a questionnaire survey with 150 households. Rice cultivation and Pangasius catfish farming were identified...
Integrating supply and social demand in ecosystem services assessment: A review
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Hejie Wei, Weiguo Fan, Xuechao Wang, Nachuan Lu, Xiaobin Dong, Yanan Zhao, Xijia Ya, Yifei Zhao As a result of the unsustainable way in which natural resources are consumed, the gaps between the supply and social demand of ecosystem services (ES) are gradually widening. In this regard, studies have increasingly assessed both ES supply and demand comprehensively. This current review covers recent case studies about the integrated assessment of ES supply and demand (IAESSD), which is defined as...
The use of meteorological data to assess the cooling service of forests
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Xuehui Sun, Xueming Li, Zhangnan Guan, Jian Liu, Shuping Zhang The climate regulation effects of forests have been extensively studied. Many evaluation methods exist to assess the climate regulation service on regional and global scales. However, the processes driving local scale effects are poorly understood. We established a new method, which combined the cooling effects of forest and cooling costs to assess the value of climate regulation of a local scale forest. The inhabitable value of cooling...
Refocusing ecosystem services towards sustainability
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Matthias Schröter, Klara H. Stumpf, Jacqueline Loos, Alexander P.E. van Oudenhoven, Anne Böhnke-Henrichs, David J. Abson Ecosystem services and sustainability have become prominent concepts in international policy and research agendas. However, a common conceptual ground between these concepts is currently underdeveloped. In particular, a vision is missing on how to align ecosystem services with overarching sustainability goals. Originally, the ecosystem service concept focused on sustaining human...
How auctions to allocate payments for ecosystem services contracts impact social equity
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): F.L. McGrath, L.R. Carrasco, B. Leimona Conservation auctions are used in Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) scheme implementation as they are an efficient way to identify participants. Ensuring a fair implementation process is important when considering an equitable PES scheme. Currently the implications, such as impacts on social dynamics and participant perceptions, of auctions at both the individual and community level are poorly understood. Using a case study a long-standing and well-established...
Scenarios for land use and ecosystem services under global change
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Maria Jose Martinez-Harms, Brett A. Bryan, Eugenio Figueroa, Patricio Pliscoff, Rebecca K. Runting, Kerrie A. Wilson Scenarios provide a platform to explore the provision of ecosystem services under global change. Despite their relevance to land-use policy, there is a paucity of such assessments, particularly in developing countries. Central Chile provides a good example from the Latin American realm as the region has experienced rapid transformation from natural landscapes to urbanization and...

01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Christian Albert, Christoph Schröter-Schlaack, Bernd Hansjürgens, Alexandra Dehnhardt, Ralf Döring, Hubert Job, Johann Köppel, Sebastian Krätzig, Bettina Matzdorf, Michaela Reutter, Stefan Schaltegger, Mathias Scholz, Marianna Siegmund-Schultze, Hubert Wiggering, Manuel Woltering, Christina von Haaren Agricultural landscapes safeguard ecosystem services (ES) and biodiversity upon which human well-being depends. However, only a fraction of these services are generally...
Embracing complexity improves the assessment of environmental flows – One step beyond Gopal’s (2016) framework
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Dídac Jorda-Capdevila, Beatriz Rodríguez-Labajos Gopal presented in 2016 a conceptual framework for incorporating ecosystem services into assessments of environmental flows. Quantifying the contribution of environmental flows to human wellbeing as Gopal proposes is indeed necessary. However, this alone does not address the challenges of their implementation or the problems caused by the lack of environmental flows. This paper offers a more comprehensive review of studies that used ecosystem services in...
Analysis of publication trends in ecosystem services research
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Kelsey McDonough, Stacy Hutchinson, Trisha Moore, J.M. Shawn Hutchinson Scholarly journal publications on the topic of ecosystem services have substantially grown throughout the past decade, which is evidenced by an expanding world-wide research base. However, several challenges in the field of ecosystem services still remain, including conflicting approaches to ecosystem services terminology, classification schemes, research methods, and reporting requirements. We assess the development and...
Rapid Assessment of Wetland Ecosystem Services (RAWES): An example from Colombo, Sri Lanka
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): R.J. McInnes, M. Everard Wetlands make essential positive contributions to multiple dimensions of human wellbeing. However, recognition of these benefits is often lacking in decision-making, compromising the wellbeing of both the ecosystem and is many linked human beneficiaries. Wetland site managers, decision-makers and stakeholders all need to better understand the benefits provided by wetlands. Despite a plethora of available assessment techniques, very few approaches are genuinely rapid, applicable...
Natural capital in practice: How to include its value in Dutch decision-making processes
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Arjan Ruijs, Petra van Egmond Scientific and policy attention for natural capital and ecosystem services have grown fast during the last decade. As a result, awareness on the value of the stock of natural capital and the flow of ecosystem services it provides increased. Decision-makers from governments, business and nature organisations nowadays have much better insights into the opportunities its sustainable use provides, for themselves and for society. Yet, translating lessons from natural capital research...
Expanding the suite of Cultural Ecosystem Services to include ingenuity, perspective, and life teaching
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Rachelle K. Gould, Noa Kekuewa Lincoln Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) are a crucial but relatively understudied component of the ecosystem services framework. While the number and diversity of categories of other types of ES have steadily increased, CES categories are still largely defined by a few existing typologies. Based on our empirical data, we suggest that those typologies need updating. We analyzed data from interviews conducted in adjacent Hawaiian ecosystems—one agricultural and one forested...
Are ecosystem service studies presenting the right information for decision making?
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): William C.C. Wright, Florian V. Eppink, Suzie Greenhalgh Monetary valuation is often used as a measure of ecosystem service value but is not appropriate for all Ecosystem Services. The ecosystem service literature has devised various formats to present monetary values together with other types of ecosystem service information, but these are rarely tested in a decision-making context. We search the literature to identify and classify formats used to present combinations of ecosystem service information...
Remote sensing combined with social-ecological data: The importance of diverse land uses for ecosystem service provision in north-eastern Madagascar
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): J.G. Zaehringer, G. Schwilch, O.R. Andriamihaja, B. Ramamonjisoa, P. Messerli Through ongoing deforestation in the tropics, forest-related ecosystem services are declining, while ecosystem services provided by agricultural land uses are on the increase. Land system science provides a framework for analysing the links between land use change and the resulting socio-environmental trade-offs. However, the evidence base to support the navigation of such trade-offs is often lacking, as information on land...
“Things are different now”: Farmer perceptions of cultural ecosystem services of traditional rice landscapes in Vietnam and the Philippines
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Vera Tekken, Joachim H. Spangenberg, Benjamin Burkhard, Monina Escalada, Susanne Stoll-Kleemann, Dao Thanh Truong, Josef Settele Traditional rice production has shaped distinctive cultural landscapes in SE Asia. Rice cultivation is closely linked to socio-cultural values and has created specific agrobiodiversity. Increasing development pressures lead to an intensification of small-scale production systems and with this to changes of landscapes and associated ecosystems services. With a focus on...
Challenges for valuing ecosystem services from an Indigenous estate in northern Australia
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Kamaljit K. Sangha, Jeremy Russell-Smith, Scott C. Morrison, Robert Costanza, Andrew Edwards Recent Australian government policy for developing northern Australia applies a standard financial approach that disregards the importance of Ecosystem Services (ES), and the significance of associated socio-cultural benefits of ES for the wellbeing of Indigenous people who constitute the majority of the regional rural population. First, we assess available ES valuation methods for estimating non-market and...
Cultural ecosystem services: Characteristics, challenges and lessons for urban green space research
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Dawn C. Dickinson, Richard J. Hobbs City dwellers have fewer opportunities to connect with nature, with urban green space (UGS) often one of the few places where this can occur. Natural environments are known to contribute to human wellbeing, although to date research has largely focused on quantifiable benefits. The less tangible benefits obtained from ecosystems have commonly been referred to as ‘Cultural Ecosystem Services’ (CES). However, challenges persist around the definition and measurement of...
A physical economic model of ecosystem services
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): John E. Coulter To make full use of the power of economics, ecosystem services accounting can show how work done can be understood from the carbon cycle and compared with the economic actions represented in the Circular Flow of the Macroeconomy. The comparison is useful in fitting data from both fields on the one spreadsheet to assist in economic and environmental management. This requires some review of concepts originally formed before the industrial revolution discoveries of modern science. Though labor...
To what extent have the links between ecosystem services and human well-being been researched in Africa, Asia, and Latin America?
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Ecosystem Services, Volume 25 Author(s): Gisella S. Cruz-Garcia, Erwan Sachet, Genowefa Blundo-Canto, Martha Vanegas, Marcela Quintero Most studies to date assume that there are multiple relationships between ecosystem services and human well-being, but there are few studies that quantify these relationships. Our objectives were: (1) to investigate the trends and understudied areas within ecosystem services and well-being research; and (2) within these general trends, to analyze to what extent the linkages between ecosystem services and...
