About this book

Integrates ecological risk assessment (ERA) and economic analysis to improve environmental management in a diversity of watersheds. The practical focus on real-world decisions includes the effects of urban development, mining, and water withdrawal for agriculture and also evaluates the socio-economic and institutional dimensions of decision making.
