This book gives an economic perspective on deforestation. Following a survey of different deforestation definitions, theories and empirical evidence, a case-study of Ecuador provides a versatile historical picture of factors affecting forest loss throughout different periods, regions and ecosystems. It is shown that policy and market failures alone cannot explain rapid deforestation; decision-makers follow a composite economic rationale in their continuous clearing of forests which can only be counteracted by concerted action.PPN: PPN: 1751113000Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-PEF | ZDB-2-SEB | ZDB-2-SXEF | ZDB-1-PEO
