Summary
The Forum discussed sustainability research and development activities related to ecosystem services and biofuels. The objective of the Forum was to identify research gaps and opportunities for collaboration among federal agencies to meet the challenges to sustainability posed by the need to maintain critical ecosystem services, to support the development of alternatives to conventional fossil fuels, and to manage oceans and coastal areas. The forum focused primarily on federal activities, but included the participation of representatives from the private sector, universities, and nongovernmental organizations. The Forum's session on ecosystem services featured an introduction defining the concept of ecosystem services and elaborating on some of the most critical research gaps .
