Ecosystem services mapping is witnessing a surge in usage, with a significant increase observed in recent times. However, the lack of characterization of conservation knowledge shortfalls can result in essential gaps in decision-making and public policy. The goal of the scientific paper, published in Biological Conservation Journal (doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2023.110086) was to delineate the thematic changes that have emerged in ecosystem services mapping and their significance in biodiversity conservation. To achieve this, we conducted a literature search on this topic and identified 1670 relevant documents published between 2005 and 2021. This database presents and makes available the raw data of this publication.
