Notes: Based on a paired analysis, we describe a method for evaluating the potential of rivers with different physical characteristics to provide ecosystem services. Notable developments included the full integration of cultural ecosystem services alongside provisioning and regulating and supporting services. The four rivers with statutory nature conservation designations provided a greater range and typically higher ecosystem service scores than those with little or no designation, a result that has significant implications for river conservation and for framing catchment-level conservation policy.
