The objective of this study is to evaluate the economic value of ecosystem services of water-based tourism resources in Heilongjiang Province and to provide theoretical support in tourism resources conservation and development planning. Based on the characteristics of water-based tourism resources, the market value approach, substitution engineering method and replacement cost method were used to evaluate the ecosystem services value of water-based tourism resources. Results showed that the total ecosystem service value was 116.95 billion Yuan in 2010, which direct services value was 46.17 billion Yuan and indirect services value was 70.78 billion Yuan. The ranking of various services was water storage>water supply>flood mitigation>leisure entertainment>culture research>biodiversity maintenance>aquatic product>hydropower>shipping. The results suggest that water resources exert an indispensable function to maintain the whole ecosystems health and peopleís life and wealth safety.
