Abstract

On the Ground

  • California landownerships are changing—becoming smaller and more amenity-driven, with important implications for ecosystem service production.

  • Residence on the property, larger property size, source of income from the land, having a long-term outlook, and using an advisory service are associated with landowner management for ecosystem services for the owner and for society.

  • Advisory services like Cooperative Extension and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, as well as private consultants and professional organizations, have an important role in the future of ecosystem service production.
