'With contributions by leading scholars in the field, this book surveys key concepts, methodologies and results from the important field of natural resource economics. The chapters are rigorous and sophisticated, but at the same time accessible to anyone with some graduate-level training in economics. They include both theoretical presentations and real-world discussions that tie the theory to critical resource challenges facing the world today. I highly recommend this either as a textbook for a graduate class in natural resource economics or as a key resource for anyone wanting an overview of state-of-the-art scholarship in this field.'- Kathleen Segerson, University of Connecticut, USThe topics discussed in the Handbook on the Economics of Natural Resources are essential for those looking to understand how best to use and conserve the resources that form the foundation for human well-being.
