You'll need to develop a rough research plan this week. Decide amongst your group which ecosystem service you'll value and choose a research method. It may be the one that you suggested in Assignment 3, but any other suitable method is also okay to use. Then, develop a research plan. Practitioners Guide Research may be helpful.
- Choose a research method
- Develop a (hypothetical) sampling plan and a means of data collection
- If you decide to conduct a Benefit-Transfer, identify at least one “source” case study that allows for transfer and set the method of transfer (point estimate, function) (in this case ignore step 2 and continue with 3)!
- Design a short questionnaire or an executable data acquisition set-up
- Briefly describe possible sources for biases and scope/ limitations of your study
