Valuing New Hampshire Salt Marshes: An Approach to Measuring Ecosystem Services

David Burdick, Research Associate Professor, Marine Wetland Ecology and Restoration, Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, University of New Hampshire

bwtm-presentation-burdickDavid Burdick presented work a method for estimating the ecosystem services benefits of salt marsh restoration. The approach combines ecological valuation, which uses structural and functional indicators to measure the marshes response to restoration, and economic valuation, which uses ecosystem services valuations, to determine the net gain in ecosystem services of marsh restoration.
