The Pilot Analysis of Global Ecosystems: Forest Ecosystems

By:  Emily Matthews, Richard Payne

Unique study by the World Resources Institute to provides a view of ecosystems using indicators and maps at global and continental scales. What makes the study unique is that it evaluated the state of ecosystems by examining the condition of a range of goods and services these ecosystems produce, such as Food and fiber production; Provision of pure and sufficient water; Maintenance of biodiversity; Storage of atmospheric carbon; and Provision of recreation and tourism opportunities. This serves to demonstrate the link between the biological capacity of ecosystems and human well-being - between the condition of ecosystems and their potential to support human development.
