The dataset combines the Corine based MAES ecosystem classes with the non-spatial EUNIS habitat classification for a better biological characterization of ecosystems across Europe. As such it represents probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence for each MAES ecosystem type.
Participatory scenarios development and planning In the recently published IPBES assessment on scenarios and models, the uses of scenarios for biodiversity and ecosystem services where summarized. They serve for awareness raising and agenda setting, and assist in policy and more broadly
Edge effects are among the key processes affecting biological populations and communities in fragmented landscapes, mediating landscape-scale patterns in species richness and abundance. This has been the subject of intense research over the past decades, demonstrating that edge-responses are
An impact evaluation framework to support planning and evaluation of nature-based solutions projects
Nature‐Based Solutions (NBS) are solutions to societal challenges that are inspired and supported by nature. The European Commission requested the EKLIPSE project to help building up an evidence and knowledge base on the benefits and challenges of applying NBS. In response to the request, the
Protecting nature and biodiversity is helping to tackle urgent health and social challenges across Europe. This IEEP study shows how urban, suburban and rural green areas bring multiple and often overlooked benefits to society.
State-and-transition models (STMs) are conceptual models of ecosystem dynamics after disturbances based on alternate state theory (Kachergis et al. 2011). STMs combine the representation of alternate states and the factors that drive the transitions among states with tables of qualitative
Benefits transfer (BT), or more generally - value transfer (VT) - refers to applying quantitative estimates of ecosystem service values from existing studies to another context. You take value estimates from a study site, and apply them with adjustments to a policy site where time or resource
A diverse business with global operations and land-based assets faces a number of reporting challenges. Management teams need fast access to data that is locked away in departmental silos, inaccessible and unusable. Even with close links to these departments, gathering all the information needed to
This report gives guidance for seeking information that supports the integration of ecosystem services into policy and public management. We present for each ecosystem service a succinct selection of literature and further sources, which describe example indicators for approximating its (bio-
Viridian numerically models entire catchments to identify which habitats should be created and where to create then to most reduce local problems: a prioritisation of what to do where to give best bang for buck. We concentrate first on natural flood management, diffuse pollution (soluble and
Nature-based solutions like constructed/treatment wetlands, can play an essential role for the water pollution control at urban scale and for reducing the flooding risk while providing positive effects on biodiversity, social acceptance and economics.
The Blue Carbon Toolkit integrates both online and offline (tablet-based) technology for assessing and validating coastal 'blue carbon' habitats (mangroves, saltmarsh, seagrass etc). The tool allows habitat validations to be completed in the field using an offline, tablet-based validation
The Natural Capital Protocol Toolkit is an interactive database that helps businesses find the right tools to measure and value their impacts and dependencies on natural capital as they use the Natural Capital Protocol. By tools, we mean any resource, methodology or approach that is relevant to
Mapping and assessment of ecosystem services in Natura 2000 sites of the Niraj - Tarnava Mica region
The goal of the project is to assess and map the most important ecosystem services of the area based on the perception, valuation and utilization of the services by the local residents.
EFISCEN is a large-scale forest model that projects forest resource development on regional to European scale, based on detailed national forest inventory data and scenarios. These scenarios are mainly determined by management actions, but the model can also take into account changes in forest area
Guiding question on ecosystem services and governance for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers
In society many actors and structures are at play and interact in myriad ways. The term governance goes beyond traditional forms of political steering (i.e. regulation, public management and hierarchical state activity). Governance emphasizes novel instruments (such as voluntary and market-based
Distributional data for more than 10 000 species of birds for all land and non-pelagic species was mapped for each species at a resolution of 1x1 latitude-longitude grid cells.
