Abstract

Why do conservation biologists, ecologists and other natural scientists working on environmental problems feel the need to copy, or rather parody, a narrow economic discourse? This editorial criicises this approach with reference to the UN's report The Economics of Biodiversity and the extension of tradable permits to such areas as endangered species and wetlands.
