Theis working group is exploring ecosystem services dynamics within social-ecological units across different landscapes and seascapes.
The working group met for the first time in 2015, at a workshop in Sweden (see phot above), and is composed of researchers representing regional case studies that have investigated ecosystem service trade-offs and synergies (i.e. ecosystem service bundles) within social-ecological units across different landscapes and seascapes. Working group participants have contributed with data from 18 different case studies. A follow up workshop was held in Sweden in October 2016. Some of the focal research questions of the working group are:
One publication has been generated by this working group, and several more are in preparation.
