Abstract

In contemporary times, economists and ecologists have pointed out that ecological and economic systems are jointly determined. Once this is understood, it seems rather clear that ecological-economic systems ought to be analyzed as a single system. However, because this understanding has been rather recent, a number of salient topics in ecological economics remain inadequately understood. As such, the objective of this paper is to point out and discuss five of these outstanding topics.

Note: This is a description of the paper and is not the actual abstract.

Keywords: ecological-economic system, keystone species, natural capital, optimal management, persistence, resilience, substitutability

JEL Classification: Q00
