The objective of this study is to spatially identify the main ecosystem services provided by nature reserve De Maashorst, the Netherlands. Ecosystem services are to be understood as the benefits that people obtain from ecosystems, such as water, food and recreation. Identification and participatory mapping of the ecosystem services in De Maashorst will allow decision makers to spatially identify which areas are advised to be maintained due to their high supply of ecosystem services and which specific areas can potentially generate ecosystem services in the future.
