"A clear grasp of economics is essential to understanding why environmental problems arise and how we can address them. ... Now thoroughly revised with updated information on current environmental policy and real-world examples of market-based instruments .... The authors provide a concise yet thorough introduction to the economic theory of environmental policy and natural resource management. They begin with an overview of environmental economics before exploring topics including cost-benefit analysis, market failures and successes, and economic growth and sustainability. Readers of the first edition will notice new analysis of cost estimation as well as specific market instruments, including municipal water pricing and waste disposal. Particular attention is paid to behavioral economics and cap-and-trade programs for carbon."--Publisher's web site.
"Montello and Sutton is one of the best texts I've used in seminars on research methodology. The text offers a clear balance of quantitative vs. qualitative and physical vs. human which I've found particularly valuable. The chapters on research ethics, scientific communication, information technologies and data visualization are excellent" - Kenneth E.

Kristin Nicolaus erarbeitet in diesem Buch eine diskursdemokratische Perspektive auf Zahlungen für Ökosystemdienstleistungen (PES). Sie rückt die Kommunikationen und Möglichkeiten der Partizipation in den Mittelpunkt und analysiert – mittels qualitativer Inhaltsanalyse – 18 Entstehungsprozesse von PES in Deutschland und Großbritannien. Aus der empirischen Untersuchung ergeben sich Erkenntnisse, die bisher kaum Beachtung fanden und Aussagen darüber treffen, wie vielfältig PES zustande kommen und welchen Einfluss die jeweiligen Kontexte darauf nehmen. Die gewonnenen Einsichten setzen sich von bisher vorherrschenden Funktionslogiken ab und erweitern so das Bild von Zahlungen für Ökosystemdienstleistungen.
