Ecological services are the goods and services provided by an ecosystem that help sustain human life. Traditional economic valuation lacks the flexibility to account for all these services. Ecological economics uses different approaches to account for these services and provides a more accurate value of open space. A study of the West Tatnuck neighborhood of Worcester, Massachusetts highlights the differences between the schools of thought and shows the value of ecological services to an urban area.
