Remote Sensing and Ecosystem Services: Current Status and Future Opportunities for the Study of Bees and Pollination-Related Services

19th January 2018
Published under: Data Tools & Methodologies,Enabling Environment,Why Natural Capital?

This paper was originally published in Current Forestry Reports.  “Abstract: An unprecedented array of observing systems, coupled with ever increasing computing capacity, makes this a golden era for ecologists to study and quantify ecosystem services using remote sensing technology. Here, we review recent studies that utilize remote sensing to understand the supply and demand of ecosystem… [more]

A Global Geospatial Ecosystem Services Estimate of Urban Agriculture

18th January 2018
Published under: Data Tools & Methodologies

This paper was originally published in Earth’s Future.  “Abstract: Though urban agriculture (UA), defined here as growing of crops in cities, is increasing in popularity and importance globally, little is known about the aggregate benefits of such natural capital in built-up areas. Here, we introduce a quantitative framework to assess global aggregate ecosystem services from existing… [more]

Practical Solutions for Bottlenecks in Ecosystem Services Mapping

4th January 2018
Published under: Data Tools & Methodologies,Enabling Environment

This paper was originally published in One Ecosystem.  “Abstract: Ecosystem services (ES) mapping is becoming mainstream in many sustainability assessments, but its impact on real world decision-making is still limited. Robustness, end-user relevance and transparency have been identified as key attributes needed for effective ES mapping. However, these requirements are not always met due to… [more]

A Review of Riverine Ecosystem Service Quantification: Research Gaps & Recommendations

12th December 2017
Published under: Data Tools & Methodologies,Enabling Environment

This paper was originally published in Journal of Applied Ecology.  “Abstract: 1.Increasing demand for benefits provided by riverine ecosystems threatens their sustainable provision. The ecosystem service concept is a promising avenue to inform riverine ecosystem management, but several challenges have prevented the application of this concept. 2.We quantitatively assess the field of riverine ecosystem services’… [more]
