Providing a detailed account of the law of nature conservation, this book reviews and discusses the way in which the law promotes the conservation of species of animal, bird, and plant, and how it protects natural habitats for protected species. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the book sets nature conservation in its economic and scientific context. It explains how the law reconciles the public interest in promoting biodiversity and the conservation of species and habitats, on the one hand, and the private property rights of landowners and other resource appropriators on the other. The book offers an illuminating new interpretation of this area of environmental regulation using a resource allocation model of property rights to explain how legal and economic instruments for promoting nature conservation work in practice. The analysis covers all recent legislation and case law - including the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 and the 2012 National Planning Policy Framework. The book will serve as a critical guide to UK nature conservation law for those working in the system, and a valuable reference point on the UK's approach to the area for environmental lawyers and policy-makers overseas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Law of Nature Conservation makes an important conceptual contribution to this dichotomy by arguing in favour of incorporating an environmental duty as a qualification to the right of property: protecting our natural environment is not an excessive burden imposed on private owners. * Anatole Boute, Cambridge Law Journal *
The Law of Nature Conservation makes an important conceptual contribution to this dichotomy by arguing in favour of incorporating an environmental duty as a qualification to the right to property * AnaTole Boute, The Cambridge Law Journal *
[A] clear overview of a complex and fragmented area of law ... the book amply lives up to the 'blurb' on its cover as a 'critical guide to UK conservation law for those working in the system, and a valuable reference point on the UK's approach' for others. Valuable indeed, for everyone. * Colin T Reid, Environmental Liability *
For those with an interest in nature conservation law this is an essential read and is exactly what is wanted for academic courses. * Andy Robinson, Environmental Law & Management *
