This book for both economist and non-economist audiences describes ways in which economic analysis can be an important tool to inform and improve EBM. Topics include modeling economic impacts, benefit-cost analysis, spatial considerations in EBM, incentives and human behaviors, and accounting for uncertainty in policy analysis. Throughout the book the authors elucidate the different kinds of insights which can be gained from the use of different economic tools. This work demonstrates how comprehensive economic analyses consider the full range of potential services offered by marine and coastal ecosystems, including the conservation of biodiversity and creation of recreational opportunities. Authors are Daniel Holland, James Sanchirico, Robert Johnston, and Deepak Joglekar.
