Ecosystem Services
PDF File Size: 5.54 MB | Download   
Ecosystem services are benefits human populations directly or indirectly derive from ecosystem functions (Costanza et al., 1997). These include provisioning services such as food and water, regulating services such as flood and disease control, cultural services such as spiritual and recreational benefits, and supporting services, such as nutrient cycling that maintains the conditions for life on Earth. There are strong linkage between the services provided by ecosystem and human well- being. For example, freshwater provided by the ecosystem will directly impact the health of humans. The supply of pure and clean water will enhance the health condition whereas the impure and polluted water will cause different types of water borne diseases like cholera, dysentery, diarrhoea, typhoid, etc. Besides ecosystem services, other environmental as well as economic, social, technological, and cultural factors also influence human well-being.
