Choosing the optimal management option requires environmental risk managers and decision makers to evaluate diverse, and not always congruent, needs and interests of multiple stakeholders. Understanding the trade-offs of different options as well as their legal, economic, scientific, and technological implications is critical to performing accurate assessments and making sound decisions.

Valuation of Ecological Resources: Integration of Ecology and Socioeconomics in Environmental Decision Making examines alternatives for determining the "value" of complex ecological resources. Integrating the latest concepts in ecology and socioeconomics, the authors discuss how ecology, sociology, and economics influence environmental management decisions.

This book

  • Provides insight on the roles of regulatory and legislative bodies in the decision-making process

  • Provides ecological and economic information sets, tools, analytical frameworks, and strategies needed to make sound environmental decisions
  • Presents real-world case studies that apply the strategies and approaches presented in this book

This text represents the collaboration of top scientists and policymakers in industry, academia, and environmental regulatory agencies, brought together by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). It is an excellent resource for self-study as well as for courses in industrial ecology, environmental management, ecological risk assessment, environmental policy, and strategies for sustainability and corporate responsibility.
