BESS Resource Paper / Glossary Clarifying biodiversity & ecosystem services-related terminologies & those relevant to pesticides & agriculture

This glossary was developed by ECPA’s Biodiversity Expert Group (BEG) with a range of experts and organizations in biodiversity conservation, seeking a common language for exchange on biodiversity and ecosystem services (BESS). It intends to support mutual understanding and facilitation of communication around the increasingly prominent topic, for example in interdisciplinary projects or working groups.
We highly appreciate the valuable input from members of Bioversity International, The Global Nature Fund, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, and the Department of Land Economy at the University of Cambridge, along with comments from the ECPA BEG and cited resources.
