What are two examples of ecosystem services?
What are some examples of the ecosystem services provided by biodiversity?
- Supporting (e.g. soil formation, nutrient cycling, primary production)
- Provisioning (e.g. food, fresh water, fuelwood, fiber, biochemicals, genetic resources)
- Regulating (e.g. climate regulation, disease regulation, water regulation, water purification, pollination)
