Workshop on Soil Threats and Ecosystem Services

ecoservsmea 1 44635


Although there is a large body of knowledge available on soil threats in Europe, the complexity and functioning of soil systems and their interaction with human activities, climate change (CC), and ecosystem services (ESS) is still not fully understood.


Therefore, the Work package 2 team of the RECARE project organised an ESS workshop in Wageningen on May 19th 2014. The purpose of the workshop was to exchange background information of the concept of EcoSystem Services and their interaction with the main topic within RECARE: Soil Threats.


The presentations given by Leon Braat, Mark Everard and Gudrun Schwilch have been recorded on video. These recordings can be viewed below. For convenience, the presentations and the discussion/questions afterwards have been separated in different recordings. Both can be seen below.


The PowerPoint presentations themselves can be downloaded from the table below.
