Assessing and Governing Ecosystem Services Trade-Offs in Agrarian Landscapes : The Case of Biogas

  title={Assessing and Governing Ecosystem Services Trade-Offs in Agrarian Landscapes : The Case of Biogas},
  author={C. C. Albert and Johannes Hermes and Felix Neuendorf and Christina von Haaren and Michael Rode},
This paper develops a method to explore how alternative scenarios of the expansion of maize production for biogas generation affect biodiversity and ecosystem services (ES). Our approach consists of four steps: (i) defining scenario targets and implementation of assumptions; (ii) simulating crop distributions across the landscape; (iii) assessing the ES impacts; and (iv) quantifying the impacts for a comparative trade-off analysis. The case study is the region of Hannover, Germany. One scenario… CONTINUE READING
