Description
 
The U.S. Forest Service has adopted the concept and language of ecosystem services to describe the beneficial outcomes of national forest management. The authors review the economic theory of ecosystem services as it applies to public lands management, and consider what it implies about the types of biophysical and other data that are needed for characterizing management outcomes as changes in ecosystem services. Their intent is to provide a guide to policymakers, managers, researchers, and others for evaluating and describing the tradeoffs involved in the management of public lands. Characterizing ecosystem services fundamentally is about explaining the benefits of national forests to the American public, with an emphasis on addressing their interests and concerns about how public lands are managed. This report is intended to foster dialog about what people value about national forests and how public land management agencies might best go about securing those benefits. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
