Ecosystem Services

go to these weblinks and learn about ecosystem services, and also learn about the economic value of protecting natural ecosystems and their services.The Ecological Society of AmericaCostanza, R., et. al. (1997). The value of the world’s ecosystem services and natural capital. Nature, 387, 253-260.The United Nations: The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment & HumansOf the different kinds of ecosystem services you learned about, discuss two that are important in your local area, village, forests and/or nation.How are these services endangered and what economic costs to society do you foresee with their loss?For example, when people built homes and buildings over wetlands in Florida, then the wetlands were destroyed. Normally, wetlands are important to help control flooding, and without them, there were more floods and water damage in cities, which caused a lot of economic costs to the citizens. So, now Florida is trying to restore many lost wetlands in order to have the ecosystem service of flood control returned.What is one action that people could take to help protect these services?

Construction And Societal Impacts

Before building a new power plant, a utility company must gain permission and procure the required permits for construction from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). At this time, the policy of the EPA is to limit construction of power plants to clean burning natural gas systems (to reduce emissions of CO2). One result of this policy is the reluctance of utility companies to build new power plants. California has recently experienced serious problems with their ability to provide enough electricity for its residents because of this reason. One result of this problem is that utility rates in California jumped 500% to 600% in a one-year period.With the above information in mind, write a short essay of at least 1 page discussing pros and cons of this EPA policy. Be sure to keep in mind things like environmental impacts but also issues relating to social impacts due to higher electrical prices. Submit your paper to the appropriate folder in the Dropbox area of the course.

What is their current distribution and prevalence? What environmental (think of natural environment, not their home environment) and social factors (that affect the environment) contribute to their spread? Does any treatment exist for the diseases?
