Quantitative Indicators & Metrics of Ecosystems
Services, Health & Function

The challenges of mapping the capacity of landscapes to deliver aquatic ecosystem services (AES) are extensive, especially considering service assessment across scales varies from the regional to national levels. Aquatic ecosystems are hierarchically orga-nized, and thus depend on processes that may occur far beyond the sites where AESare delivered (e.g., nutrient distribution across watersheds and its impact on local lakefish productivity). As a consequence, we need quantitative spatial frameworks to gener-ate hydrological data at several scales that can then serve as predictors against knownvalues of AES, which in turn can be used as a way to predict key ecosystem services.
