According to Robert Constanza, 50% of the total cost for ecosystem services goes to

A

Recreation

B

Soil formation

C

Nutrient cycling

D

Climate regulation

E

Habitat for wildlife

Answer

Robert Constanza and his colleagues have very recently tried to put price tags on nature’s life-support services. Researchers have put an average price tag of US $ 33 trillion a year on these fundamental ecosystems services, which are largely taken for granted because they are free. Out of the total cost of various ecosystem services, the soil formation accounts for about 50 per cent, and contributions of other services like recreation and nutrient cycling, are less than 10 per cent each. The cost of climate regulation and habitat for wildlife are about 6 per cent each.
So, the correct answer is 'Soil formation'.
