Human and nature in symbiosis

In recent years, ‘ecosystem services’ has become an increasingly common concept within the research community, as well as in municipalities, public authorities and industry. In simple terms, ecosystem services can be described as the benefits humans gain from nature’s ecosystems, for example regarding the food we eat, the air we breathe, purification of the water we drink, the bioenergy we use to heat our homes, the wood that is made into paper, houses and so on. The list is long and the value hard to estimate.
