Description

An Introduction to Ecological Economics, Second Edition is the definitive introduction to the field of ecological economics, which is concerned with extending and integrating the study and management of ecological as well as economic needs, sustaining both "nature's household" and "humankind's household." It provides a unified understanding of natural and human-dominated ecosystems and reintegrates market economics within the limits posed by the biophysical world. Written by five of the leading figures in the field, this new edition adds a series of "boxes" to expand and update information in the current text and addresses such forefront topics as the historical development of economics and ecology and motivation for incorporating humans into ecosystems.
