"This book is a significant resource both as a foundational reference in the field and as a graduate text. It goes immediately to the question of how fast we should disinvest in natural capital and how we use economic tools to determine the answer to that question. With its unusual combination of depth and focus, it is a real contribution to the current literature on the economic assessment and management of biological resources. There are presently no texts that are as inclusive and simultaneously as advanced as this one." Jane V. Hall, California State University--Fullerton
