About this Seminar

As we seek to identify and value the benefits accrued to people from ecosystem services, one task we face is how to relate measures of ecological condition – or ecological indicators – to these services on which we place value. This seminar will explore approaches to making those translations. The focus will be on demonstrating how impacts on landscape and field-based indicators of stream, wetland, and riparian condition can be used to predict changes in the services provided to us all by healthy aquatic ecosystems, such as water-based recreation, floodwater storage, and carbon sequestration.
