    Abstract

    Ecological economics is transdiciplinary effort to understand and manage the complex system of humans and the rest of nature towards the goal of mutually enhancing the wellbeing of all life. This book works to unpack this definiton and propose an accompanying research, policy, and action agenda. A central challenge ist he focus of ecologial economics tends to be on high-stakes, urgent, interdependent ecological, economic and social problems in which facts are highly uncertain and values matter.
