Assessing the potential for mapping ecosystem services in England based on existing habitats (NERR056)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

This report describes a new approach to mapping ecosystem services at the England scale. This approach follows the National Ecosystem Assessment (UK National Ecosystem Assessment, 2011). The maps and methodology described use as base data the Centre of Ecology and Hydrology’s Landcover Map 2007 (LCM2007) to describe the potential for areas to deliver individual ecosystem services.

The purpose of this report is to describe how we have followed the NEA assessment of the ability of habitats to deliver ecosystem services, using LCM2007, to create England level ecosystem service maps.

The individual maps are available to download in JPEG format below. They are designed to be printed on A4 paper.
