A Report of Ecosystem Goods and Services in the Wye Valley AONB has been compiled by Stephen Parrett whilst on a placement with the AONB Unit in June 2011
The report aims to identify the key ecosystem services provided by the Wye Valley AONB.
It identifies the broad habitats present in the area, recognising enclosed farmland and woodland as the two most significant habitats and detailing the ecosystem services they provide. The threats to ecosystems and strategic objectives for managing ecosystem services is also discussed.
The report then moves on to identify those ecosystem services which are unique to the area, focussing on the importance of geodiversity and the River Wye itself in providing cultural, economic and biodiversity value. Finally the conclusion looks at the economic value of ecosystem services in the Wye Valley AONB.
