An Economic Analysis of Recreational Fishing and Environmental Quality Changes in the Upper Oldman River BasinDownload
A Discrete Choice Travel Cost model, based on data collected from a survey of recreational anglers, was used to estimate changes in recreational fishing benefits in the Upper Oldman River region of Alberta resulting from the construction of a dam. The results show that this model is useful for...
The purpose of this study was to identify the values Saskatchewan residents place on their Woodland Caribou conservation programs. Using contingent valuation methods, individual values for maintaining caribou numbers within Millar Western-NorSask Forest Management Licence agreement area were...
A simulation model of a ranch based in Southern Alberta was developed to evaluate the on-ranch economics of adopting different grazing management strategies to improve riparian health in rangeland. Under low cost scenarios, there are positive economic incentives to adopt strategies to maintain...
Conservation auctions (CA) are typically employed to increase the provision of Ecological Goods and Services (EG&S) for achieving environmental goals. This paper examines the ability of a CA to meet an environmental target. Previous research on this topic used the number of contracts as a target...
