Book Description :

Debate about how best to ensure the preservation of agricultural biodiversity is caught in a counter-productive polemic between proponents and critics of market-based instruments and agricultural modernization. However, it is argued in this book that neither position does justice to the range of strategies that farmers use to manage agrobiodiversity and other livelihood assets as they adapt to changing social, economic, and environmental circumstances.

This book examines the challenges faced by farmers trying to maintain crop biodiversity in developing and transitional economies. Using a collection of empirical case studies of farmers and crop scientists across a range of agricultural economies and income levels, it presents economic tools and methods for valuing and managing crop biodiversity. It discusses the economic benefits of crop biodiversity for farmers and suggests ways in which crop biodiversity can be supported by national policies. The book provides an indispensable 'tool kit' for all those concerned with the development of strategies to facilitate sustainable management and conservation of crop genetic diversity for future generations.

Book Description :

Tisdell has produced one of the best books in print about the economics of environmental conservation. This volume updates the 1991 edition by discussing more current issues, theories, developments, and analytic frameworks. Tisdell masterfully weaves into many chapters insights from ecological economics a somewhat new area of economics that cannot be ignored in informed discussions of environmental conservation. . . Tisdell writes clearly and documents each chapter extremely well. He presents a quite balanced view on policy issues, discussing pros and cons of different policies. . . Overall, an extraordinary book. Essential. Academic collections, upper-division undergraduate and up. D.D. Miller, Choice I like it alot and would certainly recommend it to students as an excellent entry point into environmental economics. It is certainly comprehensive, covering international through to local environmental issues, developed and developing country experiences across both green and brown topics. The book is written in a highly accessible style and embodies a rigorous theoretical base on which is developed a host of practical examples of application. This reflects Tisdell s wide ranging experience as one of the senior statesmen of environmental economics. Jeff Bennett, The Australian National University A second edition of this book is to be warmly welcomed. The insights it offers into the sustainable use of ecological resources, especially in developing countries, are important for those coming to the study of environmental, resource or ecological economics for the first time. While the treatment of new topics such as globalization and the Environmental Kuznets Curve adds value to the original text, the inclusion of much material from the first edition helps remind us that there is a rich and long-standing literature on this topic. Charles Perrings, University of York, UK In the second edition of Economics of Environmental Conservation Clem Tisdell applies wisdom, experience and carefully developed economic theory to dozens of conservation issues. The result is a wide ranging book that skillfully employs ecological economics to analyse conservation issues drawn often from Australia and Asia and relevant in many countries. The policy options proposed to the diverse conservation issues reflect a philosophy developed during more than thirty years research. The book is a rich source of insight and inspiration for anyone analysing environmental conservation issues. Ross Cullen, Lincoln University, New Zealand Few economists have the breadth of experience and depth of analytical capability to comment with insight on the vast array of issues that now comprise the environmental agenda. Clem Tisdell is one of that small band. Here is a welcome expansion of his already successful Economics of Environmental Conservation. Highly recommended. David Pearce, University College London, UK This fully updated and comprehensively revised edition of a classic text concentrates on the economics of conserving the living environment. It begins by covering the ethical foundations and basic economic paradigms essential for understanding and assessing ecological economics. General strategies for global environmental conservation, policies for government intervention, developing countries, preserving wildlife and biodiversity, open-access to and common property in natural resources, conservation of natural areas, forestry, agriculture and the environment, tourism, sustainable development and demographic change are also all covered. This second edition deals with contemporary environmental policy issues that can be expected to be of lasting concern and importance each chapter benefiting from either the addition of substantial sections of new material, valuable explanations or updates and revisions in light of developments in theory or world events and conditions. Updated techniques of economic analysis are also introduced, explained simply, and a

Book Description :

The intent of this action plan is to define Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada's strategy to work with its partners on issues related to biological diversity from an agricultural perspective. These issues include habitat conversion and fragmentation, agricultural practices, wild species at risk, diversity of domesticated species, exotic species, living modified organisms, and atmospheric changes. Activities described are identified under the four main goals of the plan: promote sustainability in agro-ecosystems while respecting natural ecosystems; increase awareness and understanding of biodiversity in agriculture; conserve and facilitate access to genetic resources important to agriculture; and integrate biodiversity conservation objectives in departmental policies, programs, strategies, regulations, and operations. Appendices include highlights of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy, examples of departmental biodiversity initiatives, and a glossary.

Book Description :

McNeely (chief scientist, IUCN-The World Conservation Union) and Scherr (advisor, Future Harvest-Washington, D.C.) argue that the maintenance of biological diversity can be compatible with increased agricultural yield. They detail 36 case studies that suggest farmers can gain economic benefits in farming systems that promote biodiversity. Technological innovation is a primary key to the promotion of "ecoagriculture." They provide separate recommendations for areas where the top priorities are maintaining biodiversity, improving agricultural productivity, or promoting poverty reduction.
