A Conceptual Model to Assess Stress-Associated Health Effects of Multiple Ecosystem Services Degraded by Disaster Events in the Gulf of Mexico and Elsewhere
(JOURNAL) [Published : Mar 01, 2017]
Few conceptual frameworks attempt to connect disaster-associated environmental injuries to impacts on ecosystem services (the benefits humans derive from nature) and thence to both psychological and physiological human health effects. To our knowledge, this study is one of the fi...
A Science-Governance Partnership for Integrating Ecosystem Services into Puget Sound Restoration Planning
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Dec 06, 2018]
Numerous studies have established that impacts from mounting population and climatic pressures are decreasing the capacity of coastal watersheds and estuaries to provide services essential to human health and well-being – clean drinking water, flood protection, habitat for ...

Adaptive management for ecosystem services (j/a)
(JOURNAL) [Published : Dec 01, 2016]
Management of natural resources for the production of ecosystem services, which are vital for human well-being, is necessary even when there is uncertainty regarding system response to management action. This uncertainty is the result of incomplete controllability, complex intern...

Over the past four years, we have been developing a science-governance partnership among US EPA Great Lakes National Program Office, US EPA Office of Research and Development, and states to foster the concept of Remediation to Restoration to Revitalization (R2R2R) a decision-sup...
Combining ecosystem services assessment with structured decision making to support ecological restoration planning
(JOURNAL) [Published : Sep 09, 2018]
Accounting for ecosystem services in environmental decision making is an emerging research topic. Modern frameworks for ecosystem services assessment emphasize evaluating the social benefits of ecosystems, in terms of who benefits and by how much, to aid in comparing multiple cou...
Conceptualizing Human Well-being and Ecosystem Services in Context of Economic and Social Aspects.
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Dec 06, 2010]
Abstract for presentation at ACES Conference 2010.
Contributions of Ecosystem Services to Human Well-being in Puerto Rico
(JOURNAL) [Published : Nov 18, 2020]
Ecosystem services, including availability of greenspace, clean air, and clean water, can have benefits to human well-being, but their relative importance compared to economic or social services is often overlooked. In Puerto Rico, for example, improving community well-being, inc...
Designing a systematic landscape monitoring approach for quantifying ecosystem services
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jun 09, 2010]
A key problem encountered early on by governments striving to incorporate the ecosystem services concept into decision making is quantifying ecosystem services across large landscapes. Basically, they are faced with determining what to measure, how to measure it and how to aggre...
Does competition among ecosystem engineering species result in tradeoffs in the production of ecosystem services?
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 23, 2014]
Production of ecosystem services depends on the ecological community structure at a given location. Ecosystem engineering species (EES) can strongly determine community structure, but do they consequently determine the production of ecosystem services? We explore this question ...
Dynamics of ecosystem services provided by subtropical forests in Southeast China during succession as measured by donor and receiver value
(JOURNAL) [Published : Feb 01, 2017]
The trends in the provision of ecosystem services during restoration and succession of subtropical forests and plantations were quantified, in terms of both receiver and donor values, based on a case study of a 3-step secondary succession series that included a 400-year-old subtr...
EPA’s EcoService Models Library (ESML): A New Tool for Quantifying and Valuing Ecosystem Services
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Dec 06, 2018]
A challenge in quantifying and valuing ecosystem services is finding ecological models with endpoints that align with ecosystem services. U.S. EPA’s EcoService Models Library (ESML) is a readily available tool that addresses this challenge. ESML is a website and database fo...
