 Ecosystems play a crucial role in regulating the effects of extreme natural events on human systems. They influence both the probability and strength of natural hazards and their impacts(( MEA, Millennium Ecosystem Assessment 2005. "​Ecosystems and human well-being: synthesis."​ Island, Washington, DC))   . In the case of this specific ES the ecosystem counteracts the occurrence of avalanches, mudslides and rock falls, mainly through vegetation cover. In the European Alps this ecosystem function is strongly connected with the protective effect of forest ecosystems in mountain areas mostly known as '​[[:​wiki:​protection_forest|Protection Forest]]'​. Ecosystems play a crucial role in regulating the effects of extreme natural events on human systems.

-Within the AlpES project the provision dynamics of the ES [[:​wiki:​protection_against_avalanches_mud_slides_and_rockfalls_in_the_alps_|protection against avalanches, mud slides and rockfalls in the Alps]] were assessed by means of the following supply, demand and flow indicators: 
- 
-Supply: [[:​wiki:​site-protecting_forest|Site-protecting forest ]](%) 
- 
-Demand: [[:​wiki:​infrastructure_at_risk|Infrastructure at risk]] (%) 
- 
-Flow: [[:​wiki:​object-projecting_forest|Object-projecting forest]] (%)
