Further development of a spatial framework for mapping ecosystem services
The outputs from this study will support JNCC in its goal of embedding the ecosystem services framework in decision making.
The ecosystem services approach is a key
element of planning for sustainable development. Phase one of this
project ‘Spatial framework for assessing evidence needs
for operational ecosystem approaches’ identified habitat
attributes which influence ecosystem services. Phase two continued
on from this work to help design and monitor management strategies.
The output of this project aims to support JNCC in its goal of
embedding the ecosystem services framework in decision making.
This report is accompanied by five
briefing papers, a User Manual and a Microsoft Access database
‘Ecosystems Spatial Framework Database’ associated with this
The database takes into account the main
factors and the logical steps that need to be followed to
facilitate and inform mapping of ecosystem services.
