This report summarises results of the first ecosystem services project undertaken in Australia. The project has sought to introduce a new way of thinking about the relationship between people and the environment they depend on. The project's quantification of ecosystem services at selected scales (case studies) contributes directly to catchment planning. Above this, the awareness of transfer of services across scales can contribute to investment in natural capital that takes explicit account of otherwise unrecognised scale effects.
