2013 Ecological Indicators  
Highlights ► We compare maintenance costs arising from a hypothetical case of damage. ► We use ecological indicators of MEA categories of ecosystem service and the HEA. ► There are differences between maintenance costs depending on ecosystem services. ► Maintenance costs are high for regulating services, low for provisioning services. ► Maintenance costs are more difficult to determine for cultural services.
