Can we put an economic value on the ecosystem services by Nature? What will be the costs of accomplishing pollination without help from natural pollinators? Can we put a price tag on such things??????

Dear student

Yes, we have to. Putting real economic value on components of nature will help protect the environment and promote biodiversity. Ascertaining that value can then help decision-makers bring environmental factors more explicitly into their planning.
The cost of accomplishing pollination without natural pollinators is incommensurable. But if it is only for a smaller area like your garden or a few plants, then the cost depends on the quality of pollen grains used for pollination.
Robert Constanza and his colleagues tried to put price tags on nature's life support services, which was about US $ 33 trillion a year.
