The National Ecosystem Services Partnership (US) has published the Ecosystem Services Conceptual Model Series. The Series provides a collection of resources explaining why ecosystem services conceptual models (ESCMs) are useful for decision making, providing guidance for building ESCMs, and describing NESP’s initial efforts to standardize and apply these models with federal agency partners. It includes application examples of ESCMs and associated evidence libraries. The series aims to provide practical guidance for those who wish to apply ESCMs as a tool for incorporating ecosystem services considerations into their decisions. Building on this series, NESP is now working with a number of agencies to build and use these models as a foundation for selecting a consistent set of socio-economic indicators for restoration and developing quantitative predictive models for resource management.
