"Nature and the Marketplace examines the real prospects for nature's marketable services to "turn profits" at levels that exceed the profits expected from alternative, ecologically destructive business activities. As an accessible but rigorous introduction to market-based conservation, Nature and the Marketplace will be essential reading for professionals, students, and scholars in conservation biology, ecology, environmental economics, environmental policy, and related flelds."--Jacket.
