NESP has a new series: Mapping Ecosystem Services for the Southeast United States.
Each brief from the series details methods and data used to map priority areas for conservation or restoration of a particular ecosystem service in the Southeast. Briefs on " Conservation and Restoration Priorities for Wild Pollinator Habitat " and " Conservation Priorities for Recreational Birding " can now be found on our website, with more to come! (Mapping results for Pollinator Habitat and Birding can be found on ScienceBase.)
