The Ecosystem Services Working Group highlights three key challenges in the development and implementation of monitoring schemes and indicators of ecosystem services (ES):  (1) combining ES observations, data and methods across scales; (2) identifying operational ES metrics that consider the interactions between people and ecosystems; and (3) integrating the diversity of socio-cultural values and knowledge into monitoring activities. We encourage the ES research community to join us in addressing these focus areas for ES monitoring.
