"...a detailed analysis of the economic and scientific rationales for the use of property rights-based approach to biodiversity conservation...The book will be of interest and relevance to a broad spectrum of conservationists from research students to policy makers." Environment International "This book gives a lot of interesting information about intellectual property rights and biodiversity conservation...The book does not pretend to give an answer on how biodiversity conservation is to be achieved, but gives hints and counsels in which direction solutions could be found...I would like to express my hope that the discussion about biodiversity conservation will finally lead to concrete results. I am convinced that this book is a step in the right direction." Stefan Gafner, Ecoscience
