Economics of Environmental Conservation: Economics for Environmental & Ecological Management
Hardbound. The study of the relationship between economic systems and ecological and environmental ones is an important one which affects all living organisms and is becoming increasingly recognized in policy circles worldwide. The more this relationship between economics and ecology is studied, the more aware we become that a great deal of our existing knowledge is imperfect and gaps need to be filled. This book specifies economic means for improved management of biological resources with their respective life-support systems, and takes into account environmental issues. Special attention is given to the consequences of economic growth and development on resource conservation and policies such as those arising from the World Conservation Strategy and the Brundtland Report. The coverage in this volume is both innovative, modern and in a semantical sense, non-techncial, based on the interdependence between economic, social and ecological systems.
