About this Item

The cause of global change has been the subject of heated debate in the past few years, especially in relation to climate change and biodiversity decline. However, a systematic explanation for changes in the biosphere at the global level has still not been found. In this volume, a wide range of viewpoints from ecology and economics are surveyed to see if some light can be shed on this problem. Economists analyze how economic growth predictably alters the earth, and ecologists consider how the drive for fitness and consequent population growth changes the globe. Both look at the institutional interface between humans and biosphere, and explain global change as the consequence of human noncooperation and conflict. The object of this volume is to initiate debate among economists, ecologists and conservationists on global change at this most fundamental level. Small price label with magic marker going through it on inside front cover, otherwise in very nice condition. Bookseller Inventory # 037767

About this title

Synopsis:

The cause of global change has been the subject of heated debate in the past few years, especially in relation to climate change and biodiversity decline. However, a systematic explanation for changes in the biosphere at the global level has still not been found. In this volume, a wide range of viewpoints from ecology and economics are surveyed to see if some light can be shed on this problem. Economists analyze how economic growth predictably alters the earth, and ecologists consider how the drive for fitness and consequent population growth changes the globe. Both look at the institutional interface between humans and biosphere, and explain global change as the consequence of human noncooperation and conflict. The object of this volume is to initiate debate among economists, ecologists and conservationists on global change at this most fundamental level.

Book Description:

Although global change is subject to much debate, the ultimate causes of climate change and biodiversity decline are little understood. In this volume, a wide variety of viewpoints have been sought from ecologists and economists in order find a systematic explanation for changes in the biosphere at the global level. The purpose of this volume is not to give a definitive answer, but to initiate debate on global change at this more fundamental level.
