Natural resource management -- New Jersey, Ecological economics


This report is divided into three main parts. Part I presents essential background information, summarizes the detailed findings of Parts II and III and their limitations, and explores in a preliminary way the policy implications of the natural capital project and the future research needs in this area. Part II focuses on ecosystem services and Part III deals with ecosystem goods.


The research described in this report was funded in part through the generosity of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Morristown, NJ, and the William Penn Foundation, Philadelphia, PA. The author and his colleagues at NJDEP and the University of Vermont would like to express their appreciation for the support of these two outstanding philanthropic organizations. Additionally, thanks are extended to Robert Perry and Bradley Campbell for their leadership in initiating this project.
