Root Causes of Biodiversity Loss
A fine analytical framework based on the distinction between proximate causes of biodiversity loss (pollution, over-harvesting, climate change), and root causes (poverty, demographic changes, national and international policies and markets). The framework helps in weighing and connecting the causal factors, what data to collect and how to interpret these. The book serves as a reminder of the complexities faced by policymakers.
