Summary

This book is the premier introductory environmental economics text for non-majors. Key chapters are extracted from the author's longer book, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, the best-selling text in the field. The result is a compact text that includes a concise introduction to economic theory, as well as a variety of policy-based chapters. Each policy chapter discusses relevant environmental and political background, and then applied the critical economic concepts to real-world examples. By including both basic theory and in-depth, issues-based application, the book is ideal for a wide range of courses in environmental and natural resource economics.

  • NEW! Two new chapter on biodiversity -- one on habitat protection, one on overexploitation -- have been adapted from Second Edition chapters on forest and fisheries, respectively.
  • NEW! A section entitled ''Web Site of Interest'' has been added to each chapter. Clear, concise introduction to basic economic theory, and application of theory to current policy issues.
  • Well-developed coverage of both environmental and natural resource economics.
  • Interdisciplinary perspective that emphasizes public policy and draws on the natural and physical sciences, literature, history, and political science.
  • Self-contained chapters for individualized course use.
  • Wealth of boxed examples.
