New tool launched for assessing ecosystem services

Gretchen Daily

Gretchen and her colleagues from the Natural Capital Project were featured on February 2 on the KQED radio program QUEST. The segment focused on Invest, a software tool created by the group to help land managers understand the monetary value of ecosystem services in the places they work. Gretchen also received media attention in November 2008 for a study in southwestern India showing that farming can support conservation of diverse bird species.
