Details

I need help building a literature review of relevant literature on the ecological benefits water features in parks and communities. You will need to perform Google Scholar searches like this:
http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=hydrologic+ecosystem+services&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C11

The first paper in the results of this search is called "The nature and value of ecosystem services: an overview highlighting hydrologic services". I'm need you to help me find 20+ papers that - like this one - discuss this question of the "Ecological Services" value of water in city open spaces, parks etc.

Then I need you to read the papers and prepare a brief summary of what the paper has to say on this topic of water related benefits. You won't be able to just copy the abstracts, because the abstract may be on a larger or related topic, but somewhere in the paper it will make some statements about the benefit of water within the concept of "ecosystem services". That is the part I'm interested in.

I'm expecting the result to be approximately 20 pages double spaced in Microsoft word. I also need the PDF files them selves for the papers you use.

I can pay for about 60 hours at about $20/hour.
