Research group Ecosystem Service Change
Effects of land management on the Supply and Distribution of ecosystem services
Short descriptionEcosystem services are usually conceptualized as being supplied by nature alone; however, there is increasing evidence showing that most ecosystem services are jointly co-produced by different combinations of natural and anthropogenic inputs. These anthropogenic inputs are also known as capital assets, which include, human, social, technological and financial capitals.
The main goal of ESuDis is to understand the different pathways by which anthropogenic and natural capitals are combined to sustainably co-produce ecosystem services and contribute to the equitable distribution of these services (Fig. 1).
WP1: Project conceptualization, organization and coordination
WP2: Causes and consequences of the substitution of natural capital by anthropogenic capital on the supply and distribution of ecosystem services.
WP3: Influence of the governance of the different capitals on ecosystem services supply and distribution
