Mechanisms for environmental regulation - a study of habitat conservation

Kathryn Last

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This article looks at the purposes of state intervention for habitat conservation and the forms it assumes. It shows how justifications for intervention, under the influence of international and EC obligations, have moved from anthropocentric to ecocentric and shows how initial reliance on direct action and agreements has given way to a much richer variety of forms of intervention.
