Abstract Ecosystem services (ES) originated as a concept that reflects the value of nature for humans and provides additional reasons for protection and sustainable management of ecosystems (see Chapter 2.3). Many ES face spatially explicit pressures or rely on anthropogenic contributions such as technology, energy or knowledge. ES maps can help to uncover risks for ecosystem health, unsustainable use of potentials to provide a service, harmful impacts on a landscape, impaired spatial flows of ES as well as mismatches between ES supply and demand (see Chapter 5.2). Such information can indicate where to improve ES provision and where to prioritise nature and biodiversity conservation.
