James, Simon P. (2015) 'Cultural ecosystem services : a critical assessment.', Ethics, policy and environment., 18 (3). pp. 338-350.
This paper is about the practice of evaluating ecosystems on the basis of the cultural services they provide. My first aim is to assess the various objections that have been made to this practice. My second is to argue that when particular places are integral to people’s lives, their value cannot be adequately conceived in terms of the provision of cultural ecosystem services. It follows, I conclude, that the ecosystem services framework can provide only a very limited account of the value of places.
