“The course was a great opportunity to understand how ecosystem services should be modelled. I found that the attention given to the beneficiaries of such ES and to modelling trade-offs between different beneficiaries taking into account sources and sinks of services as well as pathways through which these services reach the final beneficiaries was particularly useful in order to understand the ES concept. I particularly liked the fact that the course was mostly practical and we used the software from the first day which was really helpful to gain an understanding of the potential of ARIES and the vast number of questions that can be addressed. The team provided great support at all times especially by working in small groups to tackle particular questions related to our study fields. Absolutely recommend anyone interested in ES to attend the course!” Ainhoa M., ETH Zurich, and Estacion Biologica de DoƱana, Sevilla
