Ecosystem goods and services - Segmented pyramid diagram
"Ecosystems represent sources of natural capital and provide goods and services to society, also called ecosystem services. The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment identified over 24 ecosystem services that can be divided up into 4 general groups including: 1) provisioning, 2) supporting, 3) regulating and 4) cultural."

"Humankind benefits in a multitude of ways from ecosystems. Collectively, these benefits are known as ecosystem services. Ecosystem services are regularly involved in the provisioning of clean drinking water and the decomposition of wastes. While scientists and environmentalists have discussed ecosystem services implicitly for decades, these the ecosystem services concept itself was popularized by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) in the early 2000s. This grouped ecosystem services into four broad categories: provisioning, such as the production of food and water; regulating, such as the control of climate and disease; supporting, such as nutrient cycles and crop pollination; and cultural, such as spiritual and recreational benefits. To help inform decision-makers, many ecosystem services are being assigned economic values." [Ecosystem services. Wikipedia]
