Ecosystem services are important to a range of Earth's life support systems from climate to water quality. flowers Agro-ecosystems and forests provide food, fuel, and materials. We focus on measuring ecosystem services using earth observations, ground measurements, and models. Our primary focus is on forests and agro-forestry with a special attention to carbon management and carbon markets. best games for android (Photo: Thai Dipterocarpus, Ryan Libre)te (phot (
