2 Understanding Ecosystem Services: Geoecological processes/functions with value for the society

Chair: Thomas Koellner

Thursday, 11:00-12:00,

Ecosystems and their species provide valuable services for humankind und must be managed facing global environmental change. The goal of this session is to present and discuss research on underlying geoecological processes/functions, but also research on socioeconomic factors determining the value and management of ecosystem services. Relevant scales can range from plot to regions to the globe.

Such research naturally links geoecology and geography. When you apply, please state which ecosystem service(s) you are referring to based on the TEEB classification.
