Bundles of ecosystem services in a Swedish landscape

A recent study reveals that there are five distinct bundles of ecosystem services across the Stockholm region (Norrström drainage basin).

The paper - "Mapping bundles of ecosystem services reveals distinct types of multifunctionality within a Swedish landscape" - led by Cibele Quieroz (Stockholm Resilience Centre) and a team of researchers affiliated to PECS and the SEEN project, shows that human-dominated landscapes in the study area are associated with a diverse set of critical ecosystems services and that densely populated urban areas are hotspots of cultural services.
