In recent years landscape and wildlife conservation has attracted increased attention from environmentalists and policy-makers. There have been policies within the European Union aimed at conserving wildlife and landscape in Europe for more than a decade and appraisal of these policies is opportune. A workshop was therefore held at the University of Hohenheim in September 1996 to examine critical issues associated with these policies. This workshop was one of a series, each focusing on a key theme as part of the EU Concerted Action, "Policy measures to control environmental impacts from agriculture". This book presents a selection of revised papers from this workshop. The overall perspective is an economic one, with several chapters reviewing analytical methods, economic valuation of the benefits of agricultural landscapes and the costs and benefits of wildlife conservation. These are set in the context of the Common Agricultural Policy and environmental policies in the EU. The book represents important reading for agricultural and environmental economists, as well as those concerned with ecology and conservation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is applied ecology at its best: here is the cutting edge of the interface among politics, economics (classical and theoretical), law, and ecology (holistic and reductionist). . . . Julie Whittaker's contribution on (economic) relationships between agriculture and the environment [is] a
fascinating and readable discussion. She clearly describes the theory of ecology and economics and states at the outset that she considers economics a subsystem of ecology. . . . This chapter is worth reading, regardless of where one lives. Other chapters provide interesting case studies and
accounts of land use conflicts, wildlife conservation . . ., spatial modeling, and further discussion of integrating agricultural and environmental policies. The editors have done an outstanding job in assembling a group of competent authors and interesting chapters."--The Quarterly Review of
Biology
