Ecosystem service tradeoff analysis reveals the value of marine spatial planning for multiple ocean uses (2012)
Marine spatial planning (MSP) is an emerging responsibility of resource managers around the United States and elsewhere. A key proposed advantage of MSP is that it makes tradeoffs in resource use and sector (stakeholder group) values explicit, but doing so requires tools to assess tradeoffs. We extended tradeoff analyses from eco- nomics to simultaneously assess multiple ecosystem services and the values they provide to sectors using a robust, quantitative, and trans- parent framework.
