The EU’s 2018 Bioeconomy Strategy Update and the European Green Deal recently confirmed that the bioeconomy is high on the political agenda in Europe. Here, we propose a conceptual...
This dataset is an output of KIP INCA.
The dataset presents the contribution of ecosystems to crop provision by multiplying the yield in tonne/ha with the ecosystem contribution ratio. This ratio is a number between 0 and 1 and expresses the contribution of natural ecosystem inputs to crop yield. (Human inputs including fossile fuels, labour and fertilisers are thus excluded from this dataset).
The rastermap shows the actual flow of crop provision as ecosystem service (EC_flow12_tonha_rescaled.tif). It is based on the CAPRI model data (after disentangling the ecosystem contribution for each crop type separately).
Given the differences between CAPRI data and EUROSTAT statistics on crops used in the accounting tables of the associated report the map has been readjuted by multiplying with a correction factor so as to make the value reported in the map consistent with the value reported in the accounting table of the associated report. Example: If CAPRI reports 20 tonne and Eurostat reports 18 tonne, then the correction factor is 18/20=0.9
This publication was prepared within the implementation of the Action 4.4 “Incorporating the value of forest ecosystem services in a green economy” of the FOREST EUROPE Work Programme 2016–2020.
The publication is focussed on integration of climate change adaptation measures to sustainable forest management in Europe. Besides Part II prepared by the team of authors, the publication also...
