Ecosystem services reference book
Edited by Marion Potschin (Fabis Consulting, UK) and Kurt Jax (UFZ, DE)
This reference book is made up of currently 24 individual Synthesis Papers (SPs) generated by the OpenNESS members. The individual SPs have been formally consulted within the entire OpenNESS consortium and hence represent an agreed document for the OpenNESS consortium defining and elaborating on essential ideas linked to the ecosystem service concept. All SPs have been going through an editorial process including revisions to be checked. The consultation was handled in a transparent way for the consortium and the way the authors responded to the comments/criticism on the original drafts can be found on the OpenNESS extranet.
The SPs are not meant to be a full review on the topic but represent an agreed basis for taking the work of the project forward. Its content may change, however, as the results of OpenNESS emerge. A final version, incorporating all the new material, will be published at the end of the project in 2017.
Terms within the individual SPs are linked to an over 200 words long glossary. Pdf versions of the SPs can be downloaded from the left-hand side of this page.
NOTE THAT THE SPs ARE CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED. FOR THE FINAL VERSION PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE PDF FILE!
