Handbook of Ecosystem Services

Professor Kerry Turner, CSERGE Director, is a co-editor, with Marion Potschin, Roy Haines-Young and Robert Fish of the Routledge Handbook of Ecosystem Services.

This handbook provides a comprehensive reference text on ecosystem services, integrating natural and social science, including economics.

The book demonstrates the importance of biodiversity for people, policy and practice.

The authors show how the value of ecosystems to society can be expressed in monetary and non-monetary terms, so that the environment can be better taken into account in decision making.

The book includes chapters on
- Environment & Agriculture
- Environment and Sustainability
- Geography
- Economics, Finance, Business & Industry.

A better understanding of the relationships between people and nature is essential to resolving the challenges of sustainable development and poverty reduction, and the creation of a green economy in developing and developed world contexts.
