Description

This accessible volume fills a much-needed gap and addresses coreissues on how economic and environmental systems are interconnectedlooking at how economic frameworks and features of environmentalsystems can be integrated within formal models to address changesand associated resource management issues at appropriate levels:micro level and national or global level.

The more the relationship between economic and environmentalsystems is studied analytically and empirically, the more aware webecome of the gap in our existing knowledge of environmental dataand process parameters. While important empirical questions areunanswered in environmental economics literature, work on theenvironmental science of ecological systems fails to raise theright questions and identify key variables in human-exploitedecosystems.

This book covers:
* Concepts and Methods
* Land, Water and Production
* Biodiversity, Preservation and Production
* Pollution Externalities
* The Environment and Global Economy
This timely book will be of interest to environmental scientists,economists and policy makers, students, academics, and researchersinterested in ecosystems modelling, ecological economics andenvironmental resource economics.
