The relation between the concept of ecosystem services and practice is a moving target: a dynamic field of operation, experimentation, discourse and concern, and many challenges and ambitions. We have asked a diversity of real world actors for their reflections on the usefulness of the concept of ecosystem services for their practice. The fact that we are able to present quite a diversity of contributions from (mainly local and some international) non-academic actors illustrates the current interest. We present some key challenges based on these reflections.
