Understanding, valuing, and managing dynamic ecosystem services under stress: Synthesizing across the LTER Network

Principal Investigators:

Stephen Farber, and Robert Costanza

This project utilizes the LTER site network to develop understanding of the biogeophysical dynamics in stressed ecosystems and the implications of those dynamics for the valuation and management of ecosystem services and underlying ecological support systems. It uses a variety of LTER sites, in different ecological and economic contexts but all subject to existing or potential human stressors. It addresses the appropriateness of valuation methods, how valuations can be transferred among different contexts, and how databases can be developed consistently... more
