Abstract

[Extract] Ten years have elapsed since the publication of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MEA, 2005), which highlighted both the plight of our planet's ecosystems and the attendant threat to the services they provide to humanity. The MEA was a call to action for citizens, governments, industry and scientists to understand why ecosystems are degrading, and to find solutions that are practical and timely in halting the degradation and restoring ecosystem function and service provision. Ecosystem science is at the forefront of developing the required understanding and finding the solutions. We need to find new ways of analysing and synthesising available information to inform policy and action on the ground.
