Lineamientos para una ganadería ambientalmente sustentable en el Delta del Paraná

Los humedales brindan una amplia variedad de bienes y servicios ecosistémicos fundamentales para la sociedad.

Las funciones ecosistémicas de los humedales y, en última instancia, los bienes y servicios que estos proveen a la sociedad,dependen de las características de los componentes, la estructura y los procesos que tienen lugar en estos ecosistemas.
