.figure 5 should say “other ecosystem services" visibility is an ES (but CICES might label it differently). notes “to value the consequences of your impacts to society” the terms need to be aligned throughout the document. i think you want measuring impacts 

speaking of terms, methodology is the scientific study of methods. i think you want the term method. 

Table 10..visibility is a cultural ES. why to define it as such? 


Box 11 – “Depleting water from a system generally leads to water scarcity." “generally” is too much. it is saying that any withdraw depletes. 

Table 16 – water quantity can lead to loss of cultural ES (views, amenity, recreation) 

Figure 7 – disamentiy is is not consistent with the rest of the document. choose amenity or disamenity…or better yet, just use CICES terms. 

Table 21 – i'm not certain the bioaccululation factors are a measure of yield. maybe you mean ES? if the quality of the fish drops to it can't be consumed, the # if fish may not change, but the provision does. yield it not the best measure of the ES of fish-you need to deduct the labor and built capital to catch the fish. 


section 2.3.5 on land use the term ES the most and it should be aligned with CICES or NCESC Plus. from the definition to the terms.  see for rationale 

Finisdore J, Rhodes C, Haines-Young R, Maynard S, Wielgus J, Dvarskas A, Houdet J, Quétier F, Lamothe KA, Ding H, Soulard F, Van Houtven G, Rowcroft P (2020) ‘The 18 benefits of using ecosystem services classification systems’ Ecosystem Services 45,. doi:10.1016/j.ecoser.2020.101160

table 26 notes not using measures of physical impact. this is confusing because that what the ES is. maybe say “directly in monetary terms using the physical measure of the ES.”? 


table 27 – what is the rationale for using contingent valuation?
