Serving as the scientific backbone to the Federal Government’s ecosystem services priorities, the Sustaining Environmental Capital (SEC) Initiative builds upon the U.S. Geological Survey's existing programs and expertise related to water, fisheries, modeling, and economic valuation. The goal of the SEC Initiative is to develop, integrate, and enhance natural resource management decision support tools, systems, and information to enable managers with the ability to better account for the benefits people receive from ecosystem services in the decision-making process.

Despite growing interest in ecosystem services and multi-functional landscapes, there are still relatively few examples of projects that assess the delivery of multiple goods and services and evaluate how multi-objective conservation strategies can improve outcomes relative to single-objective or species-centric approaches (Boody et al. 2005). Quantifying the impact of conservation on the delivery of multiple ecosystem services and habitat values requires specialized expertise and extensive data collection. Even with robust biophysical and habitat models, relating these models to impacts on individuals and communities is challenging and requires interdisciplinary approaches. In addition to modeling and data hurdles,...
