Exploring methodologies for measuring ecosystem goods and services

In this three-part case study, students evaluate the methods used to determine the value of ecosystems and ecosystem goods and services as they examine experimental indicators used in a Statistics Canada publication and propose additional measures; identify limitations and issues associated with the publication and; develop a letter to Statistics Canada recommending improvements. This case study is part of the Statistics Canada: Human Activity and the Environment Teacher’s Kit that explores the question, “What is the value of an ecosystem?” It may be used independently or in combination with other teaching and learning activities in the kit.
