In recent years, there has been a marked proliferation in the literature on economic approaches to
ecosystem management, which has created a subsequent need for real understanding of the scope and
the limits of the economic approaches to ecosystems and biodiversity. Within this Handbook, carefully
commissioned original contributions from acknowledged experts in the field address the new concepts
and their applications, identify knowledge gaps and provide authoritative recommendations.
The Handbook offers a wealth of case studies and further:
• identifies the conceptual underpinnings of economics of ecosystems and biodiversity
• demonstrates new research methodologies and their applications
• provides authoritative assessment of the recent results and findings in ecosystems’ services and
biodiversity valuation and accounting
• provides the reader with the state of the art of the research on the economics of ecosystem services
and biodiversity
• provides spatial explicit tools for mapping ecosystem services values for land-use planning, including
in the context of business and industry.
This authoritative assessment will appeal to researchers and academics at both the advanced
undergraduate and post-graduate levels of environmental economics and ecological economics. Policy
makers in government, business and conservation sectors will find much to engage them as the work
will prove essential for implementing effective response policies for the management of ecosystems
and biodiversity.
