Ecosystem Services Assessment from the Mountain to the Sea: In Search of a Method for Land- and Seascape Planning

Michelle E. Portman, Yarden Elhanan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Despite the growing use of ecosystem service (ES) assessment to value natural landscapes exposed to development pressures on the edge of urban landscapes, practical applications have been few. In a pilot research project, we integrate changes in different types of ES along a gradient of land- and seascape units (terrestrial, coastal and marine). This gradient includes developed urban and peri-urban areas, and undeveloped areas including submerged lands in the coastal (territorial) waters of Israel.
