Paper Title:
Variation in Ecosystem Services Value in a Typical Mountain Town, Liaohe Watershed, China
  Abstract

This study investigated variation in ecosystem services value in response to land use change in Nanfen District of Benxi City, a typical mountain town in Liaohe watershed, China. We used two Landsat TM data sets (1995, 2006) to estimate changes in the size of seven land use categories, and we used the most recently published value equivalent to estimate changes in the values of ecosystem services. The total value of ecosystem services in Nanfen District was 1294.1 million Yuan in 1995 and 1293.49 million Yuan in 2006, with a decrease of 568.3 thousand Yuan mainly due to the declining areas of cropland, water body and wetland. We concluded that future local land use plan should give priority to the conservation of these ecosystems, in order to promote and maintain the balance of local ecosystem.
