About this book

Assesses the challenges and opportunities for using economic initiatives as compensation for protecting species at risk on private property. Examines current programs to see how well they are working and also offer ideas for how these programs could be more successful. Their ultimate goal is to better understand how economic incentive schemes can be made both more cost-effective and more socially acceptable, while respecting a wide range of views regarding opportunity costs, legal standing, biological effectiveness, moral appropriateness, and social context.

Media reviews
This book presents the most comprehensive discussion of the economics and practicalities of incentive instruments that could be used for endangered and threatened species conservation. I believe the book will have broad appeal to lawyers, biologists, economists, and others working in the field of endangered species, as well as to general readers with an interest in conservation. J. B. Ruhl, Florida State University, author of The Law of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management
