A computerized survey instrument was developed to estimate the economic value of riparian restoration along the Little
Tennessee River in western North Carolina. Restoration benefits were described in terms of five indicators of ecosystem
services: abundance of game fish, water clarity, wildlife habitat, allowable water uses, and ecosystem naturalness. An iterative
sequence of dichotomous choice contingent valuation questions were presented to local residents to assess household willingness
to pay increased county sales taxes for differing amounts of riparian restoration. Our results showed that the benefits of ecosystem
restoration were "super-additive". That is, the total value of conducting many restoration projects exceeded the sum of the value

Benchmarking in Tourism Destination, Keeping in Mind the Sustainable Paradigm

Tourism destination benchmarking and the assessment of tourism management performances are a crucial and challenging task in
the direction of evaluating tourism sustainability and reshaping tourism activities. However, assessing tourism management
efficiency per se may not provide enough information concerning long-term performances, which is what sustainability is about.
Natural resources management should therefore be included in the analysis to provide a more exhaustive picture of long-run
sustainable efficiency and tourism performances. Indeed, while the environmental endowment of a site is a key feature in tourism
destination comparison, what really matters is its effective management. Therefore, in this paper we assess and compare tourism...

The Economic Potential of Second-Generation Biofuels: Implications for Social Welfare, Land Use
and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Illinois

Madhu; Onal,
This paper develops a dynamic micro-economic land use model that maximizes social welfare and internalizes externality from
greenhouse gas emissions to obtain the optimal land use allocation for traditional row crops and bioenergy crops (corn stover,
miscanthus and switchgrass), the mix of cellulosic feedstocks and fuel and food prices. We use this carbon tax policy as a
benchmark to compare the implications of existing biofuel policies on land use, social welfare and the environment for the
2007-2022 period. The model is operationalized using yields of perennial grasses obtained from a biophysical model, county level
data on yields of traditional row crops and production costs for row crops and bioenergy crops in Illinois. We show that a carbon
tax policy...
