Human induced biodiversity loss is greater now than at any time in
human history, with extinctions occurring at rates hundreds of
times higher than background extinction levels. The field of
biodiversity economics analyses the socio-economic causes of and
solutions to biodiversity loss by combining the disciplines of
economics, ecology and biology. This field has shown a remarkable
degree of transformation over the past four decades and now
incorporates the analysis of the entire diversity of biological
resources within the living world. Biodiversity Economics presents
a series of papers that show how bio-economic analysis can be
applied to the examination and evaluation of the problem of various
forms of biodiversity loss. Containing state-of-the-art
bio-economic research by some of the leading practitioners in the
field, this volume will be an essential research tool to those
working on biodiversity issues in the academic, policy and private
