Wetlands are lands where saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities living in the soil and on its surface. Wetlands vary widely because of regional and local differences in soils, topography, climate, hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation, and other factors, including human disturbance. Indeed, wetlands are found from the tundra to the tropics and on every continent except Antarctica. This book focuses on international wetlands.

The field of natural resource economics is a broad one, and the fourteen essays included in this volume scope out major landmarks that exist in this vast territory. The essays’ subjects include an examination of media bias in the environmental/resource management debate; a comparison between lobbying efforts in the United States and in Australia in support of policies that benefit farmers; an exploration of the historical evolution of land and forestry management policies among developed nations; a look at the origins of resource economics in the US; a case analysis of Norway’s experiences with oil exploration and recovery and the international marketing of this resource for cash; and a section contemplating Georgist perspectives on resource utilization and financing. This book is a robust and wide-ranging collection in its inclusion of topics and conceptual approaches to natural resource economics.

This study examines the role of the courts in the public policy process by analyzing the federal-state conflicts over offshore energy development―known as the Seaweed Rebellion―from the Roosevelt through Clinton administrations. Dr. Edward A. Fitzgerald posits that the courts play an important role interpreting statutes and overseeing administrative actions to ensure 'that important legislative purposes, heralded in the halls of Congress, are not lost or misdirected in the vast hallways of the federal bureaucracy.' He concludes that the court's interpretations and deference towards executive decisions undermined the important statutory role of the coastal states, decreased environment protection, and has caused a breakdown in the program of outer continental shelf energy development.
