In this webinar, Katie Warnell, of the Ecosystem Services Program at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, will introduce the Nicholas Institute’s work on ecosystem services mapping and discuss how these mapping products can be used to enhance conservation work in the Southeastern US. Ecosystem services are inherently spatial. Mapping where they are abundant or in short supply provides useful information for conservation planning and communication related to conservation work. The Nicholas Institute, in collaboration with the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center, is mapping a variety of ecosystem services at the landscape level across the southeastern United States. Mapping products for wild pollination, water purification, recreational birding, and access to open space for recreation will be published this summer.
