Theory and Practice of Mapping Ecosystem Services

Edited by Peter Kareiva, Heather Tallis, Taylor H. Ricketts, Gretchen C. Daily, and Stephen Polasky

  • Discusses novel science that focuses on providing standardized valuations of multiple ecosystem services in a framework that reveals tradeoffs among services, as well as opportunities for possible new sources of funding for conservation. This science is connected to open-access online tools for mapping and valuing ecosystem services (InVEST).
  • Incorporates policy analysis and provides guidance on policy implementation
  • Boxed case studies authored by conservation or political leaders from the field enliven the book and give it broader appeal
  • Common chapter templates and rigorous editing provide a coherent and integrated work
