 The Alpine area has the specificity of delivering a variety of abiotic services such as minerals, salt and sand, but also renewable abiotic energy sources such as wind and hydropower as well as experiential interactions such as caves or rocks. The Alpine area has the specificity of delivering a variety of abiotic services such as minerals, salt and sand, but also renewable abiotic energy sources such as wind and hydropower as well as experiential interactions such as caves or rocks.
  
-//​Concerning abiotic services within the AlpES-project different opinions exist: Abiotic outputs of ecosystem services are considered as abiotic outputs of natural capital but not as ecosystem services themselves from an ecosystem point of view. Other opinions accept these outputs as goods and services from ecosystems as also the recent developments of the CICES classification system demonstrate. ​+//​Concerning abiotic services within the [[wiki:​alpesbackground|AlpES project]] different opinions exist: Abiotic outputs of ecosystem services are considered as abiotic outputs of natural capital but not as ecosystem services themselves from an ecosystem point of view.

 Within the AlpES project the general approach considers abiotic outputs besides biotic outputs, but explicitly indicating them not as ecosystem services but as “environmental services”. The deliverable “Guideline for a common understanding on Ecosystem Services” lists examples on abiotic outputs relevant for the Alpine area, however, the AlpES project does not map or assess them explicitly. An exception is the ecosystem service “Surface water for drinking purposes” (abiotic in CICES v5.1) as the selection was based on CICES v4.3, with water included in the biotic system.// Within the AlpES project the general approach considers abiotic outputs besides biotic outputs, but explicitly indicating them not as ecosystem services but as “environmental services”.
