About this book

Enterprising Nature explores the rise of economic rationality in global biodiversity law, policy and science.

- Examines disciplinary apparatuses, ecological–economic methodologies, computer models, business alliances, and regulatory conditions creating the conditions in which nature can be produced as enterprising
- Relates lively, firsthand accounts of global processes at work drawn from multi–site research in Nairobi, Kenya, London, England, and Nagoya, Japan
- Assesses the scientific, technical, geopolitical, economic, and ethical challenges found in attempts to 'enterprise nature'
- Investigates the implications of this 'will to enterprise' for environmental politics and policy
