Ecosystem services - a tool in sustainable landscape management
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Systems Ecology. (Natural resource management)
2012 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this thesis I have worked with the ambition of approaching the question of how human-ecology interaction can be articulated in a way that is useful as a vector for societal transformation. The thesis addresses the difficult question of how the ecosystem service framework may help to address mismatches between social and ecological systems.

e thesis contains five papers that both treats ecosystem services conceptually and make use of it as a reasearch tool in real landscapes. Paper I presents a typology of how tradeoffs between regulating and provisioning ecosystem services can be understood. Paper II uses the ecosystem service framework together with resilience thinking to identify stakeholders and analyse how they are affected by a change in ecosystem service delivery. Paper III investigates how a bridging organisation can counteract a social-ecological missmatch, and suggest how the strength of “bridging” can be measured. In paper IV a single ecosystem service is followed to understand on what scale management descision should be taken. Paper V expands upon how resilience thinking can complement an ecosystem service approach and presents a method, response strategy assessment, for estimating resilience in a social-ecological system.

Abstract [en]

The theoretical framework of ecosystem services and that of resilience thinking are combined in an empiricalcase study of a social-ecological system. In the River Helge å catchment in southern Sweden, a slow increase in dissolved organiccarbon (DOC) results in brownification of the water with consequences on ecosystem services in the lower part of the catchmentof concern by local resource managers. An assessment of ecosystem service delivery was conducted to (1) identify plausibledrivers of brownification in the study site and assess future ecosystem service delivery for stakeholders in downstream areas.An analysis of the perspective of beneficiaries, using qualitative methods, was pursued to (2) evaluate the impacts ofbrownification on downstream stakeholders.
