Criteria for mapping Europe's ecosystems and their services are explored through several pilot studies within the project MAES. An approach for mapping and identifying synergies and trade-offs of multiple ecosystem services was tested, aiming to investigate the potential to map ecosystem services based on prediction with models. Mapping and assessment of ecosystem services will generally be possible by combining currently available ecosystem data with environment variables, however some constrains still remain. Ecosystem services provides a framework that links human societies and their well-being with the environment, and knowledge relating to ecosystems their functioning, status and trends, and the consequences of their loss must constantly be improved. The MAES working group is part of the implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020. The aim is to support and contribute to a consistent mapping and assessment of ecosystems within the EU. The study was financed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. - - - Beställtryck, ej rapport..
