Environmental Economics is an introduction to the basic principles of environmental economics as they have been developed in the past and as they continue to evolve. The examples discussed in this book represent only a sample of the full range of issues that actually exists. For this reason, the fifth edition sticks to the basic ideas and ways that environmental economists have found to make the basic concepts and models more specific and relevant to concrete environmental issues. The basic structure and sequence of chapters are unchanged but contains new and updated material that reflects the new research efforts by environmental economists over the last few years.
This book, written by faculty from various Indian universities, is specifically tailored to the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Researchers and scholars in environmental economics and general readers with an active interest in ecology and environment related issues will also find this book a useful resource.
