Research in the Bennett lab centers around questions about ecosystem services, the things people get from ecosystems. Humanity has always depended on the services provided by ecosystems, including products such as food, freshwater, and fiber, (provisioning ecosystem services, ES), nonmaterial benefits such as places for recreation and inspiration (cultural ES) and benefits obtained by regulation of ecosystem processes, such as flood control and climate regulation (regulating ES, MA 2005). A growing body of evidence indicates that most ecosystem management, which attempts to maximize one ecosystem service (ES) at a time, actually makes ecosystems vulnerable to substantial declines in other services. For this reason, recent studies have called for increased attention to managing multiple ES together. However, effective management of multiple ES is impeded by inadequate understanding of the interactions among ES and the slowly changing variables that appear to regulate these interactions. We are interested in how the types of ecosystem services interact across the landscape and how we can manage landscapes to provide multiple ecosystem services.

Much of our research on multiple ecosystem services currently focuses on the trade-offs between agricultural production and water quality. Phosphorus (P) is a key pollutant responsible for eutrophication of aquatic ecosystems. Excessive P in lakes can lead to symptoms such as noxious algal blooms, increased aquatic plant growth, foul odors of rotting algae, and oxygen depletion. These symptoms can lead to loss of the economic, ecological and aesthetic value of lakes by restricting use for drinking water, fisheries, and recreation. The detrimental affects of eutrophication have stimulated efforts to understand and control eutrophication.

P can accumulate in soils due to fertilizer or manure use. High soil P concentrations may inhibit management of eutrophication, setting the stage for decades or even centuries
