Overview

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

The more the relationship between economic and environmental systems is studied analytically and empirically, the more aware we become of the gap in our existing knowledge of environmental data and process parameters. While important empirical questions are unanswered in environmental economics literature, work on the environmental science of ecological systems fails to raise the right questions and identify key variables in human-exploited ecosystems.

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 researchers interested in ecosystems modelling, ecological economics and environmental resource economics.
