Co-ordinating Economic, Behavioural and Spatial Aspects of Wildlife Preservation in Agriculture
AbstractThis paper addresses the supply side of wildlife preservation and restoration in agriculture at the regional level. First, we show how network design modelling can be used for economic optimal spatial selection of unsprayed field margins creating a wildlife corridor in the landscape. Second, we analyse the compatibility of field margin management with farmers' perceptions by using the results of conjoint analysis in the spatial optimisation. The theoretical model is implemented by means of a GIS model and an empirical example is added to illustrate the approach. Copyright 1999 by Oxford University Press.
