New SEP In-Depth Report: Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity
Ecosystems provide a multitude of benefits to humanity, from food to recreation. In the latest In-depth Report, four core facets of the ecosystem services concept are explored: the links between biodiversity and ecosystem services; techniques for mapping and assessing ecosystems and their services; valuation of ecosystem services and the importance of considering all services; and biodiversity as part of an interconnected system.
In-depth Reports are a series of publications from Science for Environment Policy, which take a comprehensive look at the latest science for key policy topics.
The In-depth Report is available at: www.ec.europa.eu/science-environment-policy
