Christopher Rodgers. The law of nature conservation. Oxford University Press, 2013. KD1035.R64 2013

 

The Law of Nature Conservation is an examination of the effects of laws designed to protect species and habitats. This book demonstrates how the law balances environmental interests with private property rights and public benefits of resource extraction. The author uses British law as a case study, but writes equally for parties interested in learning about the physical and social science underpinning the theories of environmental law.
