A combination of methods needed to assess the actual use of provisioning ecosystem services

This study is the first in Southeast Asia to combine plot monitoring, collection diaries, repeat interviews, and participant observation

Abstract

Failure to recognize that potential provisioning ecosystem services are not necessarily collected and used by people may have important consequences for management of land and resources.

This research was supported by the Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) programme
