Ecosystem services approach, as a very attractive for capturing relations between ecosystems and human well-being, has been absorbed by various disciplines of natural, social and economic sciences. At the same time, the goal of Special Issue is to promote research topics that sharpen the conceptual scope of ecosystem services as a research field linking different perspectives and disciplines, and thus foster the integration of nature's values into governance processes.generation of knowledge on ecosystem services is less often the subject of cooperation between disciplines. Representatives of individual disciplines undertake research according to their area of interests, conceptual foundations and disciplinary perscpectives. This provides an opportunity for the development of particular disciplines, but also form the risk of decreasing of whole concept comprehensivity as a result of its fitting to individual disciplines. The goal of Special Issue is to promote research topics that sharpen the conceptual scope of ecosystem services as a research field linking different perspectives and disciplines, and thus foster the integration of nature's values into governance processes.
Special Issue contents
The Special Issue will be focused on new achievements in crossing the disciplinary barriers in ecosystem services research, including the methods, tools, models and implementation.
We will consider papers that move beyond disciplinary bounduaries and integrate the biophysical, socio-cultural and economic dimensions of ecosystem services. Within this frame, the themes can include:
Theoretical framework for transdisciplinary approach;
Identification of comprehensive sets of ecosystem services indicators for individual ecosystem types, e.g. agroecosystems, forest ecosystems, urban ecosystems, freshwater ecosystems and marine ecosystems;
Optimal degree of data detail for analysis of ecosystem services at the national, regional and local scales;
Specificity of ecosystem services on the landscape scale;
Ecosystem services bundles, synergies and trade-offs.
