- The term cultural ecosystem services could be discarded for the more self-explanatory non-material ecosystem services.
- Differentiating services to individuals from services to communities could be helpful when valuing these ecosystem services.
- Focussing on ecosystem service change rather than simply service delivery would facilitate the assessment of such ecosystem services.
- Effort to collate long-term socio-environmental datasets will be key to implementing more broadly the ecosystem service paradigm.
