This volume is the product of the authors, recognition of all of these gaps. The central theme of this book is how economic frameworks and features of environmental systems can be integrated within formal models to address changes and associated resource management issues at appropriate levels: micro level and national or global level. The authors have published extensively in resource and environmental modelling and resource and environmental economics, including the edited volume by Jakeman et al. (Ed.) (1993) Modelling Change in Environmental Systems, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
Contributors to this volume are specialists in their own areas with a wealth of experience behind them. The invited contributions cover a wide range of systems and a mix of micro and macro level issues. Modelling Change in Integrated Economic and Environmental Systems is divided into five sections: Concepts and Methods; Land, Water and Production; Biodiversity, Preservation and Production; Pollution Externalities; and the Environment and Global Economy. It will be of particular interest to environmental scientists; economists and policy makers; and students, academics and researchers interested in ecosystems modelling, ecological economics and environmental resource economics.
