Summary:

The aim of this research project was to assess the value of ecosystem services provided by selected broad habitats in Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull. Where possible this value has been calculated in monetary terms. Within this Phase 1 Ecosystem Assessment the value of ecosystem services for woodland, grassland and heathland has been calculated in monetary terms where the actual scientific evidence and data availability allowed it. In this context the monetary value reflects the contribution of ecosystems to human wellbeing – it is not a 'price tag' for the environment.
