Linking Ecosystem Service Values to Rangel and Practices in the Central Great Plains

 \;

Ecosystem services are things that nature provides that people value. Those services\, such as reduced flooding risk and impr ovements of air and water quality\, can be linked to NRCS’\;s conserv ation practices\, expanding the effects of conservation well beyond the ra nch’\;s fenceline. A comprehensive approach to assessing the impacts of conservation practices entails an exploration of linkages to ecosystem services and their economic values. This informa tion could help NRCS better align conservation assistance policies and too ls with resource concerns and adding ecosystem service values into our con servation planning process could help motivate increased conservation adop tion by farmers and ranchers.
