Differences between Web services and Web applications

What are the differences between Web services and Web applications?

Web services are services with standard interfaces that just expose a behavior. Web applications are full blown browser-based applications that also include an interface. Web services are granular (specific well-defined functions). Web applications are complete holistic functions that are bound into a single application.
