  • About this book

  • Explains the diversity of processes in a coherent manner
  • Provides in-depth reviews on the theory, policy, and implementation of sustainability and sustainable development
  • Focuses on the economic, social, and environmental challenges facing the world today

The field of ecological economics emerged roughly two decades ago, and is rapidly growing both as a scientific endeavor and as a major guide to policy development.  Since its founding in 1989, the journal Ecological Economics has published 70 volumes containing approximately 3,000 articles.  Articles on ecological economics issues routinely appear in numerous other journals as well, including Science and Nature

Clearly, such interest indicates a maturing of the field.  It is time for a publication providing reviews of key issues and subjects in a comprehensive, relevant, and timely fashion, creating a critical point of access to the field of ecological economics, and an opportunity to reflect on past progress and chart the direction forward.

After two years of publishing Ecological Economics Reviews (EER) as a special issue of the 'Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences', we are pleased to announce a move to Springer and a slightly different name: Reviews in Ecological Economics (REE). We are confident that this move will strengthen the new REE and increase our exposure and recognition. 

Written by leading scientists and with a prominent transdisciplinary editorial board (listed below), this intelligent and up-to-date synthesis of the primary research will be an oft-cited benchmark in the field.
