Overview

Ecosystem Services for Sustainability, a Berkshire Essential, covers the many benefits provided by things we too often take for granted: the aquifers and glaciers that provide our drinking water, the forests and oceans that store excess carbon dioxide, the microscopic organisms that enrich the soil in which we grow our food, and the insects that play a crucial role in maintaining the global food supply. A team of well-known authors, writing for the nonexpert reader, looks at how nature provides for humankind, and how humankind can, in return, protect valuable and limited natural resources. The authors also explore practical ways of managing ecosystem services and integrating them into our global economy.
