dc.description.abstractThe research presented in this paper attempts to value the ecosystem services provided by the Red Hills region of southwest Georgia and north Florida in a spatially explicit manner. Land cover transformations are projected using scenario analyses, and the resulting changes in total ecosystem service values are quantified. The aim of the study is to provide land owners and policymakers with better information about the non-market value of land, so that they can make better decisions regarding land use.
