Dr. Frank Casey of the US Geological Survey will discuss the challenges faced when attempting to value changes in ecosystem services in response to climate/land use change impacts on California rangelands.
The presentation will provide a brief overview of how an economics conceptual framework and tools can be used to value three ecosystem services that California rangelands provide:
- Carbon sequestration
- Wildlife habitat
- Water flow and quality
The Alameda Creek watershed is selected as a case study example illustrating the challenges and opportunities in valuing changes in these services under two climate/land use change scenarios.
