From planetary boundaries to ecosystem services: Guiding development on a changing planet
The current scale, rate, and intensity of anthropogenic change is unprecedented, and has evoked broad discussion about how these changes will affect the future of the planet. Indeed, we are unnecessarily threatening our own security by undermining natural capital and the provision of ecosystem services. In this talk, I will show how the science of ecosystem services can be used to guide natural resource management and limit anthropogenic change while providing for human well-being.Watch the Lecture
