Abstract

Ruby Grantham examined how ecosystem services change seasonally using the case study of small-scale fisheries in Timor-Leste. Her research shows that people realise, allocate and appreciate ecosystem services differently through time. This thesis advances ecosystem service theory by deepening understanding of how people mediate dynamic links between ecosystems and wellbeing.
