Martin Oliver Reader and co-authors investigated:
(i) the degree to which ES are decoupled from indicators of modification across delta systems,
(ii) the characteristic response curves of ES to modification and how they vary between modification indicators;
(iii) the synergies and trade-offs between ecosystem service bundles and how sensitive they are to modification.
