Working group

Ecosystem Services


In landscape ecology and landscape planning, the concept of ecosystem services (ES) plays a central role. Within many studies, assessment tools are developed at different levels to indicate, quantify, and communicate ES. Here, the professional exchange and the collegial cooperation beyond traditional science communication (papers, lectures) are essential. In order to reduce time-consuming, parallel work on similar issues, the working group has the following objectives:


  • To give an overview of the current research questions and to encourage cooperation across institutes,
  • To collect and provide methods for cross-scale assessment of ES, and 
  • Fokussierte, ergebnisorientierte Arbeitskreistreffen zu veranstalten. 

To organize focused result-oriented working group meetings.
