Presentation Transcript


Open space functions from iucn

OPEN SPACE FUNCTIONS (from IUCN)

  • Regulation functions

    • Maintenance of biogeochemical cycling (e.g, air quality. CO2)

    • Climate regulation (e.g., buffering extremes)

    • Water regulation (flood protection)

    • Water supply (filtering and storage)

    • Soil retention (erosion control)

    • Soil formation & maintenance of fertility

    • Bio-energy function

    • Nutrient cycling (availability of nutrients)

    • Waste treatment(e.g., water purification)

    • Biological control (e.g., pest control and pollination)

OPEN SPACE FUNCTIONS (from IUCN)

  • Habitat functions: Providing refugia to wild plants & animals & indigenous populations to maintain genetic diversity

    • Refugium function( for resident & migratory species)

    • Nursery function (reproduction habitat for harvestable species)

OPEN SPACE FUNCTIONS (from IUCN)

  • Production Functions

    • Food (e.g., edible plants & animals)

    • Raw materials (e.g. thatch, fabrics)

    • Fuel and energy (renewable energy resources)

    • Fodder and fertilizer (e.g., krill, litter, etc.)

    • Medicinal resources (e.g., drugs, models, test organisms)

    • Genetic resources (e.g., for crop resistance)

    • Ornamental resources (e.g., aquarium fish, souvenirs)

OPEN SPACE FUNCTIONS (from IUCN)

  • Information Functions; Providing opportunities for reflection, spiritual enrichment & cognitive development

    • Aesthetic information (e.g, valued scenery)

    • Recreation and nature tourism

    • Cultural and artistic inspiration(i.e., nature as a motive & source of inspiration for human culture and art)

    • Spiritual and historic information (based on ethical considerations & heritage values)

    • Scientific educational information (i.e., nature as a natural field laboratory and reference area)

OPEN SPACE FUNCTIONS (from Fabos)

  • Biodiversity = habitat

  • Water quality & quantity

  • Recreation & tourism = economic activity

  • Structuring development

  • Historic & heritage values

  • Aesthetic & psychological well being
