Detail

This report considers ecosystem services – the multiple benefits provided to society by ecosystems – using a catchment-scale case study (the River Tamar on the Devon/Cornwall border) and a site-scale case study (the Alkborough Flats managed realignment scheme on the Humber Estuary) to help the Environment Agency learn about the applicability of an ecosystems approach to its policies and other activities.
