The Nature Conservancy The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. The Conservancy works in all 50 states and more than   1. Introduction. Multifunctional landscapes, by definition, are designed for multidimensional benefits [1,2,3,4].Landscape architects, architects, and planners are charged with designing landscapes that meet diverse human needs, while also facilitating ecosystem functions [5,6].The level of success in creating high-performance, multifunctional landscapes is attributed to the extent of.

The EBONE project has recently shown how the same principles can be used throughout Europe and beyond (Roche and Geijzendorffer, ). Following the Wildlife and Countryside Act, the then Nature Conservancy Council recognised the need for a standardised mapping programme to audit the countryside.

Such methods, however, lack adequate regard for complex natural habitats. This complexity is heightened in urban areas where green spaces provide multiple services according to use and participation.

Hence, there is a need to acknowledge the unique value of urban nature, and the socially-mediated nature of its productivity.

The governance of national landscapes. National landscapes have never played a primary role in nature conservation. While the ‘great divide’ created by the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act has been addressed in England through the merging of government bodies to create Natural England, it has remained in the separate systems of designation for landscapes and nature.

This paper is a first attempt by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to develop initial experimental statistics on UK freshwater ecosystem assets and ecosystem services. Selecting a number of indicators, this paper shows the condition of UK freshwaters between and On an experimental basis, ONS also estimates that the monetary value of UK freshwaters was £37 billion in.

It was probably E. Wilson’s book entitled Biodiversity which first brought the word to many people’s attention. Looking at the book again, there are 57 chapters, arranged in 13 sections. In many ways, the book is akin to a discussion of nature conservation, though there are.

The Joint Nature Conservation Committee, Countryside Council for Wales, Natural England and Scottish Natural Heritage told us that oxides of nitrogen (NOX) harms UK biodiversity and is compromising our ability to deliver current conservation commitments such as the objective to achieve favourable conservation status under the Habitats Directive.”.

Ecosystem services are the many and varied benefits to humans gifted by the natural environment and from healthy ecosystems include, for example, agroecosystems, forest ecosystems, grassland ecosystems and aquatic ecosystems, functioning in healthy relationship, offer such things like natural pollination of crops, clean air, extreme weather mitigation, human.

The heath fritillary M. athalia is listed as vulnerable in the UK Red Data Book (Wells, Pyle & Collins ) and is fully protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act In the UK M. athalia is a butterfly species of open coppiced broadleaf woodland (Warren a; Asher et al. However, with the decline of coppicing.

the UK Marine Strategy, we played a key role in coordinating biodiversity assessments with partners to produce a comprehensive update on the state of the UK marine environment that was published in October We also contributed data and expertise to the State of Nature.

• reconnecting people and nature • promoting the need to invest in nature for the many benefits and ecosystem services it provides. In DEFRA published Biodiversity which followed on from the Natural Environment White Paper and the UK Government’s pledge to halt the loss of all biodiversity by In national.In an article in the Guardian, a UK newspaper, George Monbiot, takes a hit on ecosystem services and natural capital.

He finds the current shift in vocabulary very worrying: Nature has become natural capital; Natural processes have become ecosystem services, as they exist only to serve us.; Ecosystems (hills, forests, river catchments, etc.) are now green infrastructure.Engagement with nature is an important part of many people’s lives, and the health and wellbeing benefits of nature–based activities are becoming increasingly recognised across disciplines from city planning to medicine.

Despite this, urbanisation, challenges of modern life and environmental degradation are leading to a reduction in both the quantity and the quality of nature experiences.
