Model for spatializing and valuing ecosystem services. A suite of models for assessing how distinct management scenarios might lead to different ecosystem service and human-wellbeing related outcome. MIMES is a multi-scale, integrated set of models that assess the value of ecosystem services. These sophisticated models allow government decision-makers, NGOs, and any other natural resource managers to quickly understand: Dynamics of ecosystem services; How ecosystem services are linked to human welfare?; How the value might change under various management scenarios?. MIMES provides economic arguments for land use managers to approach conservation of ecosystems as a form of economic development. The model facilitates quantitative measures of ecosystem service effects on human well-being. MODULES: Nutrient cycle, water reserve, carbon, energy from Earth, biodiversity, social capital, human capital, among others.
