How regulating and cultural services of ecosystems have changed over time in Italy
20. September 2022 Research Article
One Ecosystem 7: e83214 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.7.e83214 Authors: Alessio Capriolo, Riccardo Giuseppe Boschetto, Rosa Anna Mascolo, Alessio Bulckaen, Stefano Balbi, Ferdinando Villla Abstract: In this experimental study, different components are computed for three different ecosystem services (ES). Specifically, supply, demand and use are estimated for pollination service, flood risk regulation service and nature-based tourism. These are analysed and assessed in 2012 and 2018 for the Italian context, in order to estimate the evolution over this period and to allow a significant...
Urban ecosystems and heavy rainfall – A Flood Regulating Ecosystem Service modelling approach for extreme events on the local scale
16. September 2022 Research Article
One Ecosystem 7: e87458 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.7.e87458 Authors: Thea Wübbelmann, Laurens Bouwer, Kristian Förster, Steffen Bender, Benjamin Burkhard Abstract: Increasing urbanisation in combination with a rise in the frequency and intensity of heavy rain events increase the risk of urban flooding. Flood Regulating Ecosystem Services (FRES) address the capacity of ecosystems to reduce the flood hazard and lower damage. FRES can be estimated by quantification of supply (provision of a service by an ecosystem) and demand (need for specific ES by society). However, FRES for...

Beyond valuation. Monetary aggregates for the SEEA-EA. The Italian proposal
09. September 2022 Research Article
One Ecosystem 7: e84689 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.7.e84689 Authors: Aldo Femia, Alessio Capriolo Abstract: After years of experimentation, documents, meetings, consultations and negotiations, the SEEA EA re-ignited the debate on the monetary quantification of the value of nature. Now more than ever, there is a need for an original approach, able to align the SEEA EA to the principles of national accounting, to the relevant economic theory and to 'strong sustainability'. In this article, we outline a technically sound alternative to the currently dominant approach, namely...
Ecosystem services’ capacity and flow in the Venice Lagoon and the relationship with ecological status
05. September 2022 Research Article
One Ecosystem 7: e79715 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.7.e79715 Authors: Silvia Rova, Alice Stocco, Fabio Pranovi Abstract: Ecosystem services (ES) are theoretically linked to healthy ecological conditions, but this relationship seems to be rather challenging to demonstrate in the real world. Therefore, shedding light on these aspects can be crucial for implementing effective ecosystem management strategies, for instance within the context of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) implementation.

The former are reported as indicators in an asset account format, while the latter are...
Approach to user group-specific assessment of urban green spaces for a more equitable supply exemplified by the elderly population
18. Mai 2022 Research Article
One Ecosystem 7: e83325 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.7.e83325 Authors: Celina Stanley, Robert Hecht, Sercan Cakir, Patrycia Brzoska Abstract: The use of urban green spaces (UGS) depends on its quality, which is perceived very differently by diverse socio-demographic groups. In particular, elderly people have special demands on the UGS quality. It is essential to know these demands to create an equitable UGS supply. We present an approach to determining some qualitative aspects and the supply of cultural ecosystem services of diverse forms of UGS. This is realised by combining user...
