Conference Overview

You are invited to interact in an interdisciplinary setting to advance the use and understanding of ecosystem services and related science in resource management, restoration, conservation, and development decision making.

Ecosystem services "the services provided to humans from natural systems" are becoming a critical issue in resource management, restoration, conservation, and development decisions.

ACES 2008 will bring together government, non-governmental organization, academia, tribal, and private sector leaders to advance the use of ecosystem services and related science in conservation, restoration, resource management, and development decisions. 

The conference will highlight concepts and applications relating to four primary themes: 

  • Mapping and spatial relationships
  • Values and measurement
  • Dynamic systems and drivers of change
  • Institutional structures and decision making

ACES 2008 will provide a broad and open forum to discuss the latest and most innovative methods, tools, and processes for assessing ecosystem services and facilitating their effective use in planning and decision making.
