Abstract: The evaluation of ecosystem services is conducive to clarify the ecological and environmental changes with urbanization and to provide useful references for city development planning.With Shenzhen,a city experienced rapid economic development and urbanization in the past decades,as study area,the impacts of land use change on ecosystem service values were discussed.The ecosystem service value in Shenzhen was 2775.97 million RMB in 1996,2 911.41 million yuan in 2000 and 2 544.66 million yuan in 2004 respectively,with a decrease of 231.31 million yuan from 1996 to 2004 mainly due to the decrease of woodland and wetland area.Woodland,water-body,wetland and orchard nursery contributed over 90% of the total service value among the land use types.Water supply and waste treatment were the top two service functions with high service value,contributing about 40% of the total service value.Areas with high service values are mainly located in the southeast and southwest while those with low service values around the center.The results suggest that a reasonable land use plan should be made with highlight of protecting wetland,water-body and woodland so as to balance economic and ecological goals in the future.
