Clarifications of the concept of socio-cultural valuation and a structured listing of the available methodologies facilitate a better integration of socio-cultural values in ecosystem service assessments and help researchers and practitioners to choose methods from the available portfolio. We
Experimental Biodiversity Accounting as a component of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting Experimental Ecosystem Accounting (SEEA-EEA)
The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting 2012 Experimental Ecosystem Accounting (SEEA-EEA) provides a framework to measure and link ecosystem service flows supported by biodiversity and other ecosystem characteristics (e.g. soil type, altitude) with the economy and other human activities.
Mitigation cost-based valuation methods are a group of 'exchange-based' techniques that use the cost of actual measures to maintain ecosystem service provision as a proxy for the value of avoiding, mitigating or restoring the loss of services ecosystems provide. Cost-based methods give a
Woodland expansion offers a wide range of nature-based solutions for Scotland, but in most cases these benefits will depend on the characteristics of new woodland and the specific landscape scale implementation of planting schemes. We still need an improved understanding of how woodland expansion

This thrid report from the ESManage Project gathers an extensive description of the current conditions of Ireland's Freshwater Resources and the identification of their associated Ecosystem Services.
Edge effects are among the key processes affecting biological populations and communities in fragmented landscapes, mediating landscape-scale patterns in species richness and abundance. This has been the subject of intense research over the past decades, demonstrating that edge-responses are
The Natural Capital Protocol Toolkit is an interactive database that helps businesses find the right tools to measure and value their impacts and dependencies on natural capital as they use the Natural Capital Protocol. By tools, we mean any resource, methodology or approach that is relevant to
Interviews are a key method for obtaining first-hand information and field data on any aspect that is of interest. If well-conducted and properly analysed, interviews can significantly advance understanding of complex issues. Various formats exist: An in-depth interview captures how people value or
ARIES is a networked software technology that redefines ecosystem service assessment and valuation for decision-making. ARIES is an artificial intelligent modeler rather than a single model or collection of models. ARIES chooses ecological process models where appropriate, and turns to simpler

Time use study is an innovation of the conventional stated preference techniques, in particular taken from the contingent valuation approach. In this case, the payment vehicle is expressed in labour hours rather than monetary units (use in the classical willingness to pay studies) (Kenter et al.
Stated preference valuation is family of techniques which use individual respondents' statements about their preferences to estimate change in utility associated with a proposed increase in quality or quantity of an ecosystem service or bundle of services. Respondents are presented with one or
This report is the synthesis deliverable of WP4 and thus brings together the overarching message of experiences and results of the joint WP4 Instruments work. It is aimed at those developing ES and NC instruments, or those considering funding the development of such instruments, in order to ensure
