Though the urgent need to ensure the conservation of biological diversity is now widely recognised, practical measures to protect endangered species and habitats are relatively few, and generally limited to developed countries. This book discusses the economic and scientific rationales for biodiversity conservation, using arguments drawn from the use of medicinal plants in the pharmaceutical industry.
'The property rights issue is exceptionally thorny, and it is clarified by this welcome book.' Norman Myers, The Times Higher Education Supplement
