First mentioned in the 1970 MIT report, the concept of ecosystem services was popularized by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA, 2005).  It’s now used and claimed by many researchers. But numerous questions are still without answer. The thought needs a disciplinary, methodological and epistemological mixing, from ecology to anthropology and from basic research to its territorial application. This symposium is thus aimed at researchers of all disciplines, knowing that its objective is to question the ecosystem services concept in urban environments, with a particular emphasis on its cultural input.
