Intermediate ecosystem services: An empty concept?
Graciela M. Rusch and
Ecosystem Services, 2017, vol. 27, issue PA, 124-126
â€¢We question whether the idea of intermediate ecosystem services is useful.â€¢We suggest an alternative perspective based on the idea of ecosystem function.â€¢Ecosystem functions are the structures and processes that give rise to services.â€¢The new perspective links to emerging concepts of ecosystem condition and capacity.â€¢The term intermediate service should be restricted to its use in accounting.
