Ecosystem Services in the Crown

The Round Table on the Crown of the Continent, a forum that brings together people who care about this ecosystem, wanted to understand who in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem (CCE) was approaching conservation work through an ecosystem services lens. They also wanted to understand if and how the Round Table could support further application of this approach. At their request, Miistakis surveyed the Round Table mailing list and highlighted eight current programs to illustrate real world applications of the approach. The resulting report documents that while a more in-depth understanding of the approach is needed, the majority think there is value in applying an ecosystem services approach in the CCE.
