Oude Lansink New Approaches to the Economics of Plant HealthThe world trade of plants and plant products is gradually increasing in both quantity and variety. This book presents a number of recent scientific developments regarding the economic analysis of impacts that harmful organisms have on agriculture and the environment, and of measures to control these organisms. It also contains a number of new approaches that integrate economic and epidemiological modelling and economic approaches for measuring these impacts.
