Title: Increasing ecosystem services by artificial ecosystems and alleviating pressure on nature
A major challenge of managing social-ecological systems is lacking distinct functional units for operating. In social-ecological systems, instead natural ecosystems, the artificial systems provide more and more goods and services for people directly, but they receive little attention by scientists. Here, we highlight the artificial systems as the functional units of social-ecological systems and propose a paradigm that regulating various artificial systems interconnected in a network. With the paradigm we can diagnose and optimize a social-ecological system by improving artificial systems, regulating quality and spatial distribution and improve the network. The paradigm, aims at providing sufficient goods and services for human being while reduce pressure on natural ecosystems, is a complementary approach of ecosystem-based management for the sustainability of social-ecological systems. It can be used as a general tool for analyzing and managing social-ecological systems.
