What are two examples of ecosystem services?
Two examples of ecosystem services are forests and trees sequestering carbon and wetlands providing a buffer against floods and storms.
A complete explanation of what an ecosystem service is can be found in this Socratic question.
Ecosystem services come in many forms. The image below shows some of the provisioning, regulating, supporting, and cultural services ecosystems provide us.
Two specific examples of ecosystem services are 1) forests sequestering carbon and 2) wetlands providing a buffer against floods and storms.
Forests and vegetation store carbon we release into the atmosphere, acting as a buffer against the effects of climate change. Forests are known as carbon sinks, taking in atmospheric carbon through photosynthesis.
Wetlands slowly absorb water and buffer the effects of flooding from severe weather events. They store water and their trees and vegetation act as barriers for storms and slow the rush of water. You can read more about wetlands and why they're important here.
