  1. The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity: Ecological and Economic Foundations by Pushpam Kumar

    Human well-being relies critically on ecosystem services provided by nature. Examples include water and air quality regulation, nutrient cycling and decomposition, plant pollination and flood control, all of which are dependent on biodiversity. They are predominantly public goods with limited or no markets and do not command any price in the conventional economic system, so their loss is oftentimes not detected and continues unaddressed and unabated. This in turn not only impacts human well-being, but also seriously undermines the sustainability of the economic system. This volume, along with the subsequent TEEB titles, provides the authoritative knowledge and guidance to drive forward the biodiversity conservation agenda for the next decade.
