Macalester Economic Department; Carnegie Hall, Room 304

In this lecture by Spencer Phillips, a natural resource economist who has been with The Wilderness Society’s scientific team since 1992, we will present concepts surrounding the economic value of wildlands, discuss briefly some methods for estimating and documenting that value and explore several case studies where information about wildland-economy relationships has helped improve conservation and economic outcomes.
