In summary, I think that this book is a useful additionto the literature... Thus, I would recommend this book toeconomists, policy makers, land managers and students wanting toget a relatively clear and concise overview on the key aspects ofES. (Australian Journal of Agricultural &Resource Economics, 8 January 2014) This book is an introductory text that will be useful tostudents and researchers from a broad range of fields. What I dolike and thoroughly enjoyed about this book is that it demonstratesthe multiple facets or faces of ecosystem services and the benefitshumans derive from them.
