Heathens in the chapel? Economics and the conservation of native biodiversity


, : Heathens in the chapel? Economics and the conservation of native biodiversity. Pacific Conservation Biology 10(2-3): 88-105

Biodiversity conservation is a human endeavour and economic drivers play a key role in shaping human behaviour. This is particularly true of human behaviour in management of businesses (such as farms) and in relation to the resources that underpin businesses (such as land and water). For this reason, the theories and models of economics have a lot to offer people concerned with biodiversity conservation.
