Ecosystem services are the monetary and non-monetary benefits derived from nature. The ESHH lab uses interdisciplinary methods to investigate aspects of ecosystem service provision, including:
- Quantifying ecosystem service provision
- Economically valuing ecosystem services
- Understanding societal benefits from nature
- Estimating future changes in ecosystem service provision
The aim of our ecosystem services research portfolio is to generate applied knowledge that ensures the long term sustainability of our natural capital.
