This book deals with the new concept of biodiversity offsets. The aim of offsetting schemes is to achieve no let loss or even net gain of biodiversity. Offsets obey a mitigation hierarchy and reflect the precautionary and polluter-pays principle in regard to project impacts. This book brings together key studies from the deep sea and open ocean, to tropical shores and polar regions to consider how comparable the patterns and processes underlying diversity are in these different ecosystems. Marine Biodiversity will be a major resource for all Cited by: 4. Ecosystems can be considered as dynamic and interactive clusters made up of plants, animals and micro-organism communities. Inevitably, mankind is an integral part of each ecosystem and as such enjoys all its provided benefits. Driven by the increasing necessity to preserve the ecosystem productivity, several ecological studies have been conducted in the last few years, highlighting the. While the Inter-American Development Bank looks at ways to preserve biodiversity in Latin America and the Caribbean using public and private investments, a new version of the Little Biodiversity Finance Book is launched. Also, natural capital proved to be a popular topic at Rio+
widely to preserve biodiversity. In general MBIs of category A (taxes, fees and charges) can be seen as approaches that are useful to limit damage to existing biodiversity while MBIs of category B (subsidies/support) and D (eco-labelling) foster the provision of increased protection to biodiversity or the enhancement of its quality.

HARNESSING MARKETS FOR BIODIVERSITY: TOWARDS CONSERVATION AND SUSTAINABLE USE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Biodiversity and its underlying resources have always been important for economic activity. Harnessing Markets for Biodiversity book link can be exploited in order to promote sustainable use and conservation of these resources.
Get this from a library. Harnessing Markets for Biodiversity: Towards Conservation and Sustainable Use. [OECD.] -- Governments and private sector actors are increasingly recognising the potential of harnessing markets to help arrest the degradation of biodiversity.
Harnessing Markets for Biodiversity: Towards Conservation and Sustainable Use This book aims to provide a conceptual framework and examples of successful initiatives of market creation that acts as an incentive for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
Get this from a library. Harnessing markets for biodiversity: towards conservation and sustainable use. [Dan Biller; Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Working Group on Economic Aspects of Biodiversity.;] -- Biodiversity losses continue at an alarming rate.
Policies are therefore urgently needed to promote the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity. Harnessing Markets for Biodiversity: Towards Conservation and Sustainable Use, The private provision of biodiversity products and services is proving to be quite feasible in some circumstances.
Some biodiversity products and services are already being profitably marketed. Private markets also need to be supported by appropriate public. Private markets also need to be supported by appropriate public policies.
This publication provides a conceptual framework for market creation in the biodiversity policy arena, as well as several examples of where the use of markets can assist policy makers in the search for more sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity.
1 Harnessing biodiversity From diets to landscapes Fabrice DeClerck Introduction There is an increasing sense that we are at a global crossroads, at the peak of human potential while on the edge of global disaster.
Several authors highlight critical planetary thresholds. This book shows how public policy in the form of market creation can be used to internalise the loss of biodiversity.
It promotes the use of markets to ensure that our collective preferences for conservation and sustainable use are reflected in economic outcomes. vi Agriculture. Biodiversity and Markets Figures A classification of dominant agricultural agroecosystems on a 18 gradient of diversity and vulnerability to pest outbreak The relationship between planned and associated biodiversity 21 in promotion of ecosystem function The human ecology of agroecosystems and agrobiodiversity biological diversity or biodiversity, the number of species in a given habitat.
Scientists have variously estimated that there are from 3 to 30 million extant species, of which million have been classified, includinginsects, 41, vertebrates, andplants; the remainder are invertebrates, fungi, algae, and microorganisms.
Current biodiversity markets are sustained by a be lief in the markets and the con ﬁ dence that they are likely to operate according to the rules of markets in the future rather than functioning.
This book contains a series of scientific articles regarding biodiversity. Some are quite specific (taxonomy, ecology, biotechnology, etc.), while others are more readily accessible for common readers/5().

Box Over the last two decades, an increasing body of information has been added to the biodiversity science and the subject matter has become more and more voluminous. Biodiversity has now become a multidisciplinary subject in which concepts, ideas and methodologies have been contributed by a number of other disciplines.
However, there is a dearth of comprehensive textbooks on biodiversity science /5(3). Finally, the book takes research on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning further than it has ever gone into the human dimension, describing the most pressing environmental challenges that face humanity and the effects of diversity on: climate change mitigation, restoration of degraded habitats, managed ecosystems, pollination, disease, and /5(5).
