    Types of Forest Ecosystem Services

    Classification of FES listed below is derived from The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB, 2010)

    Please select the type of FES and find out which methods are suitable for its valuation

    NOTE: Case examples are provided especially for the contingent valuation method, choice modelling, the value transfer method, the market price method, the travel cost method, and the hedonic pricing method. Other methods listed in the interactive scheme contain only descriptions based on the literature review without case examples. This is because the respective method is only rarely used (most probably because it is not practically applicable), or because there is an overlap with another method (some valuation methods have several variants, and/or sub-categories, which are in fact almost identical, and are being used for essentially the same purpose).
