Economics and Ecology in Agriculture and Marine Production

New or Used: 2 copies from $200.00
In this volume, Clem Tisdell considers combined economic and ecological influences on levels of agricultural and marine production, their variations and sustainability. The book consists mainly of previously published articles, but also includes new chapters written especially for this collection. The book begins with an overview of the field, followed by an examination of the choice of variety of species for variable environments, new crops and diversification, production and impacts of economic and ecological factors on agricultural production generally. It goes on to consider specific aspects of pest and disease control in agriculture. The final part is devoted to bio-economic aspects of marine production. Interesting and often controversial topics include consequences and economic causes of genetic selection in agriculture, transgenic crops (GMOs), and effects of aquaculture on levels of wild fish stocks.

About the Author

Clem Tisdell, Professor Emeritus, School of Economics, The University of Queensland, Australia


`Overall, this is a valuable if initially eclectic set of essays, reflecting as they do Clem Tisdell's lifetime search for issues that can be illuminated by a mixed economic and ecological approach, but which have tended to be ignored by more conventional colleagues. Anyone not familiar with Tisdell's work would do well to secure this volume and dip into it every now and again.' -- David Pearce, Biodiversity and Conservation
