Cultural ecosystem servicesOther
These are the nonmaterial benefits people obtain from ecosystems through spiritual enrichment, cognitive development, reflection, recreation and aesthetic experiences
The carbon account records stocks and flows of carbon in and between various reservoirs: biosphere (stocks in vegetation, water etc.), atmosphere (as CO2,CH4 etc.), geosphere (oil, coal etc.) and the economy (e.g. warehousing, imports and exports of coal).
Biodiversity is the variability among living organisms and the ecosystems of which they are part.
These are the benefits obtained from the regulation of ecosystem processes, including air quality regulation, climate regulation, water regulation, erosion regulation, water purification and waste treatment, disease and pest regulation, pollination and natural hazard regulation.
Provisioning ecosystem services are the products obtained from ecosystems, including food, fiber, fuel, genetic resources, natural medicines, pharmaceuticals and fresh water.
Ecosystem services are the benefits generated by ecosystems in the Netherlands that contribute to the economy and to other human activity.
Humans and the economy are highly dependent on the natural environment and the corresponding provision of products and services.
