Environmental and ecological economics is a transdisciplinary branch of knowledge. It covers the study of the processess of simultaneity involved in the functioning of the economy and the environmental/ecological system, with a view to promoting human well-being sustainably. During the last three decades numerous difficult environmental problems of humanity have been explored and analysed which have enlarged its frontiers. Yet the vast mass of literature on the subject remain diffused in a variety of study materials not easily accessible to students. Besides covering the paradigmatic bases of environmental, ecological and natural resource economics, this book discusses the economic dimensions of and approaches to pollution, environmental and ecosystem management, biodiversity, global warming, energy and resource use, environmental evaluation and sustainable development.
