Historical Ecosystem Services on Natural Heritage Sites (Feasibility Study)

In this study, which is funded by the DBU, we integrate the aspect of time into the ecosystem service concept. Together with external partners and experts, we develop a methodology for analyzing historical regulating, provisioning, and cultural ecosystem services. On that basis, we assess three selected natural heritage sites in Germany.
