Abstract
The evaluation of ecosystem service value is a focus issue in the construction of ecological civilization in China. With the progress of human civilization, various types of land use projects are increasing day by day, which not only bring huge economic benefits, but also profoundly affect the regional land use pattern and ecological process, and have many influences on ecosystem services. In order to understand the real economic cost of land use projects, it is urgent to evaluate the ecosystem service cost of specific land use projects. In this paper, an ecological service evaluation model for comprehensive evaluation of land use project ecological service value is established. In this model, the emerging theory, virtual disposal cost method and market price method are applied to quantify the ecosystem service cost of land use project from four aspects of water, land, gas and biology. Using our model, we can estimate the ecological cost of a land use project more quickly and obtain the real economic cost of the project. Taking a thermal power plant as an example, the annual cost of the system service is calculated based on the ecosystem evaluation model and the existing model. By comparing the results of the two models, the feasibility and validity of the model are revealed.
