Policymakers and conservationists have argued that natural resources will be protected only if direct economic benefits accrue to those who are most responsible for the care of these resources. Wild Species as Commodities presents a balanced, rigorous consideration of the major economic, social, and ecological factors in the commercial consumptive use of wild species. Including practical guidelines for incorporating biodiversity conservation into commercial harvesting programs, this book is a primer for professionals and academics involved with resource management and wildlife conservation.
