Conference Purpose

As the issue of ecosystem services and their valuation and location becomes an increasingly important factor in resource management and conservation; decisions relating to prioritizing conservation and development locations, managing public lands, and evaluating the impacts of change are posing new challenges for policy makers.  These important decisions require an understanding of the services provided by ecosystems and ways that they can be valued and used in decision making.

The purpose of ACES 2008 is to provide a needed forum for sharing information on state-of-the-art methods, tools, and processes related to ecosystem services and their effective use in decisions.  The interdisciplinary nature of ACES 2008 will facilitate interactive discussions and networking to create and build partnerships while sharing lessons learned from the field.
