9781849711739: Conserving and Valuing Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity: Economic, Institutional and Social Challenges

This book comprehensively addresses the economic, social and institutional difficulties in conserving biodiversity and the ecosystem services that it provides. It covers a wide range of issues such as biodiversity, ecosystem services and valuation in the context of diverse ecosystems such as tropical forests, marine areas, wetlands and agricultural landscapes, non-timber forest products, incentives and institutions, payments for ecosystem services, governance, intellectual property rights and the protection of traditional knowledge, management of protected areas, and climate change and biodiversity. It also covers the application of environmental economics and institutional economics to different cases and the use of techniques such as contingent valuation method and game theory.

The book spans the globe with case studies drawn from a cross section of regions and continents including the UK, US, Europe, Australia, India, Africa and South America.

About the Author:

K. N. Ninan is Professor of Ecological Economics at the Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore, India, and Visiting Professor, Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA.

Review:

'Brings together a diverse range of expertise to address the economic, social and institutional challenges confronting policy makers in the conservation of biodiversity and maintenance of ecosystem services. The empirical evidence of the linkages between biodiversity conservation and livelihoods that the case studies provide will be of considerable interest to policy makers.'C. S. Srinivasan, Experimental Agriculture, 2012.

'Chapters cover everything from single species to small human communities, to watersheds, to large ecosystems not confined to a single nation. Methods include contingent valuation and willingness to pay (not neglecting their drawbacks), game theory, case studies, trend analysis, and complex modeling. However, this description does not mean that the book is a jumble of unrelated articles. The selection of articles allows broad coverage of the topic and progresses logically through sections on valuation, governance, intellectual property rights, and climate change. Some of the examples show the clear relationships between policy, economics, culture, and institutions, avoiding the myopic view of a topic that is too common in edited works. Most chapters are jargon free and written so that one need not be a specialist in a particular field in order to understand and appreciate the research. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.' –  B. D. Orr, Michigan Technological University, USA in Choice, 2009.

'What is refreshing is that although there are some examples from Europe and North America, most chapters focus on case studies from underdeveloped countries like Laos, Kenya, India, Philippines and Cameroon.'David Walton, British Ecological Society, 2010.
