About this book

Drawing on extensive research by the Beijer Institute in Stockholm, this book presents an overview of the causes and implications of biodiversity loss and of the conventional ecological and economic approaches to it. The authors also provide a detailed analysis of key ecosystems, including forests, wetlands, coastal and marine systems and rangelands, showing the management implications of a more integrated approach in each; and an examination of the general consequences and challenges facing this new approach to conservation and the lessons it holds for policies in the area.
