This report describes an assessment framework designed to help case study researchers collect, organize, analyze and communicate to diverse stakeholders relevant ecological information on the effects of global stressors on aquatic ecosystem services. The framework is intended to ensure that the case studies conducted for EPA's Global Change Research Program provide a comprehensive evaluation of the potential consequences of global stressors for both aquatic resources and the services they provide. The following sections provide an overview of existing frameworks that can be adapted for global change research, describe the proposed framework for evaluating effects of global stressors on aquatic ecosystem services, and outline steps in the proposed assessment process.
