This book presents a selection of revised papers from the workshop `Policy measures to control environmental impacts from agriculture'. The overall perspective is an economic one, with several chapters reviewing analytical methods, economic valuation of the benefits of agricultural landscapes and the costs and benefits of wildlife conservation. These are set in the context of the Common Agricultural Policy and environmental policies in the EU.
"This is applied ecology at its best: here is the cutting edge of the interface among politics, economics (classical and theoretical), law, and ecology (holistic and reductionist). . . . Julie Whittaker's contribution on (economic) relationships between agriculture and the environment [is] a fascinating and readable discussion. She clearly describes the theory of ecology and economics and states at the outset that she considers economics a subsystem of ecology. . . . This chapter is worth reading, regardless of where one lives. Other chapters provide interesting case studies and accounts of land use conflicts, wildlife conservation . . ., spatial modeling, and further discussion of integrating agricultural and environmental policies. The editors have done an outstanding job in assembling a group of competent authors and interesting chapters."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
