Pamela Kaval Contributes to Ecosystems Text

Dr. Pamela Kaval, faculty member in the Department of Sustainable Business, contributed a chapter to Ecosystem Services in Agricultural and Urban Landscapes, to be published April 2013 by Wiley-Blackwell.

Dr. Kaval's chapter, co-authored with Dr. Ramesh Baskaran, is titled Key Ideas and Concepts from Economics for Understanding the Roles and Value of Ecosystem Services. The chapter covers how ecosystem services can be valued, how they have been measured in the past, and current ecosystem service valuation methodologies.

Pamela Kaval is an ecological economics research consultant and a former associate professor and research fellow at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. Her work focuses on a range of topics related to natural ecosystems and ecological economics, including ecosystem service valuation, public land management, natural resource policy, wildfire, renewable resources, renewable energy and recreation values. She is currently located in the sunny Hawkes Bay area of New Zealand.

Agricultural and urban areas are by far the largest users of ecosystems and their services. This book explores the role that ecosystem services play in these managed environments and looks at methods of evaluating ecosystem services and how these services can be maintained and enhanced in our farmlands and cities. This book will be useful to students and researchers from a variety of fields, including applied ecology, environmental economics, agriculture and forestry, and also to local and regional planners and policy makers.
