About this book

The first introductory ecological economics text written specifically for natural science students. It aims to present a coherent introduction to the principles underpinning the relatively young discipline, and the interactions between ecological and economic systems.

The book is very well produced, and each chapter has its own short reading list as well as a longer set of collective references. As an introductory textbook to the field, or as a resource for professionals and scientists to broaden their knowledge of methods and approaches, this book can be strongly recommended. Philip Thornton, Agricultural Systems 72, 2002
