Spatial Ecological-Economic Analysis for Wetland Management

Modelling and Scenario Evaluation of Land Use

World wetlands are endangered by human activities and development in all parts of the world. This book approaches the study of wetlands management and development policy by using integrated ecosystem modelling that draws on insights from hydrology, ecology and economics. The authors devote particular attention to the spatial dimension, the development of a set of complementary indicators, and the aggregation and evaluation of information.


"The book successfully takes up the challenge of bringing together the natural and social sciences in spatially explicit scenario evaluation." - Ecoscience, Jan de Leeuw and Emile Dopheide, International Institute for Geo-Information
