Resumo: Cork oak woodlands or montados are ecosystems of high conservation and socio-economic importance. The present work aimed at 1) identifying and mapping biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in main area of distribution of cork oak montado in Southern Portugal 2) assessing how the distribution of these conservation values relates with the distribution of the network of classified areas and 3) assessing how the distribution of identified conservation values relates with the area of cork oak montado under forest certification. I mapped biodiversity values (presence of species of amphibians, reptiles and threatened birds) and Ecosystem Services (carbon storage and aquifer recharge rates) within the study area. For achieving this I used the open source Q-GIS 2.0.1. software together with the open access online geographic information system WebGIS Hotspot Areas for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (HABEaS: www.habeas-med.org). With the exception of Natura 2000 sites the distribution of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services is largely not coincident with that of classified areas. In relation to forest certified areas, these are presently covering a significant area of cork oak montados where biodiversity values and Ecosystem Services overlap
