Changes in landscape structure and habitat spatial configuration have strong effects on biodiversity and ecosystem processes, resulting also in profound impacts on the provision of ecosystem services. However, for a number of ecosystem characteristics and processes, changes in landscape structure do not have immediate effects but are manifested after a considerable time-lag. To evaluate the status and future trends of the provision of vital ecosystem services in changing landscapes, it is crucial to identify and incorporate the possible time-lags effects to the ecosystem services assessment.
