Advance praise: 'The challenge of incorporating ecosystem services into decision-making is inherently interdisciplinary, which in turns requires that everyone involved or interested in addressing this challenge needs to understand the principles of each discipline concerned. This excellent collection of essays had been carefully crafted to introduce the reader to all aspects of an ecosystem services approach to decision making; from natural science, through the social sciences and on to governance. Each chapter is highly accessible while the whole builds to provide a coherent introduction to the range of necessary issues yielding a collection which will be of great value to the student, teacher and practitioner.'

Despite the growing popularity of the concept of ecosystem services, policy makers and practitioners continue to struggle with the challenge of translating it into practice. Drawing on a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, this volume takes up the challenge to provide a framework for the effective implementation of simple concepts into complex ecosystem-related decision-making. Addressing the measurement, valuation and governance of ecosystem services, the book is specifically designed to guide students and policy-makers from definitions and measurements to applications in terms of policy instruments and governance arrangements. Each chapter discusses key methodological approaches, illustrating their applications at various scales by drawing on case studies from around the world. Presenting a range of perspectives from across many fields, this text ultimately considers the crucial question of how ecosystem service delivery can be safeguarded for generations to come.
