9781559634762: Nature's Services: Societal Dependence On Natural Ecosystems

Nature's Services brings together world-renowned scientists from a variety of disciplines to examine the character and value of ecosystem services, the damage that has been done to them, and the consequent implications for human society. Contributors present a detailed synthesis of our current understanding of a suite of ecosystem services and a preliminary assessment of their economic value. Nature's Services represents one of the first efforts by scientists to provide an overview of the many benefits and services that nature offers to people and the extent to which we are all vitally dependent on those services. The book enhances our understanding of the value of the natural systems that surround us and can play an essential role in encouraging greater efforts to protect the earth's basic life-support systems before it is too late.

About the Author :

Until his death in 2010, Stephen H. Schneider was the Melvin and Joan Lane Professor for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies, professor of biology, and a senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University.
He served as a consultant to Federal Agencies and/or White House staff in the Nixon, Carter, Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.His research included modeling of the atmosphere, climate change, and "the relationship of biological systems to global climate change." Over the course of his career, his groundbreaking work helped draw public attention to the issue of climate change. He was the founder and editor of the journal Climatic Change and authored or co-authored over 450 scientific papers, proceedings, legislative testimonies, edited books and book chapters, some 140 book reviews, editorials, published newspaper and magazine interviews and popularizations.

Stephen Buchmann supports pollinator science and outreach at P2 with over a quarter century of experience. His ever-expanding portfolio includes science, art, research, photography, ecotourism, and conservation. Formerly a USDA-ARS research entomologist and currently an adjunct faculty member in the entomology department at the University of Arizona, Tucson, Dr. Buchmann is an expert on bees of the southwest and tropics. A prolific writer, he has authored/co-authored 8 books and over 150 scientific publications, including “The Forgotten Pollinators” which brought the issues of pollination into view for the general public. He has been active in formulating international laws (Sao Paulo Declaration) protecting pollinators and helping put pollinator friendly language into the US Farm Bill. Dr. Buchmann also holds joint research appointments with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. As a founding member of NAPPC, Dr. Buchmann continues to serve on the steering committee and supports special NAPPC projects. He received his doctorate in entomology from the University of California, Davis. His current research interests include native bee nesting behavior, conservation biology and pollination ecology, especially buzz pollination.

Review :

"...the authors define ecosystem services, summarize historical perspectives, offer means of monetary valuation, and present some specific categories of damage.... [This] volume performs a highly valuable service, alerting readers in economic terms of the ultimately genocidal shortsightedness of abusing global biosphere." (Environment)
