Biodiversity
Here are some of the papers that I am exploring concerning approaches (and conclusions) for evaluating concordance between biodiversity and ecosystem services.
If there are other relevant papers I've omitted, please post.

This paper demostrated that the revenue generated from maintaining natural areas for tourism outweighed other land uses.
Similar to out evaluation of property value and ecosystem services.
