Valuation of marine ecosystem services

Principal Investigators:

Erica Fleishman

NCEAS and the California Ocean Protection Council are collaborating to examine existing methods of market and non-market valuation of marine ecosystem services. Participants in this workshop will compile a lexicon related to market and non-market valuation of ecosystem services. In addition, the group will outline available strategies for deriving the value of ecosystem services and associated uncertainties in measurement or interpretation. Participants will develop a preliminary list of services in coastal marine California that are expedient... more
