The International Journal of Biodiversity Science, Ecosystem Services & Management recently added new papers to its Editor’s Choice page. On this page you will find free access to nine recently published articles, selected by Editor-in-Chief, Rudolf de Groot. Together, these articles offer a nice overview of what the Journal stands for: publishing research that informs policymakers and practitioners, improving knowledge on important ecosystem services and their relation with biodiversity, exploring the balance between socio-cultural values, traditional ecological knowledge and economic development, and alternative approaches to improve biodiversity management.
Currently on the Editor’s Choice page you can find links to the following articles:
- A systematic review of approaches to quantify hydrologic ecosystem services to inform decision-making
- Coastal protection from tsunamis and cyclones provided by mangrove wetlands – a review
- Drawing on traditional knowledge to identify and describe ecosystem services associated with Northern Amazon’s multiple-use plants
