Praise

“Ripping open the ever-expanding black box of environmental markets, mitigation banking, and restoration, Lave and Doyle educate and entertain. Revealing the convoluted process of market-based attempts to protect nature, this is a must-read for those who love or study the environment — especially rivers and streams.” – Margaret Palmer, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, College Park, and Director, National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center

“Lave and Doyle unravel the complex mitigation paradigm and bring us to a critical choice, a fork in the road. The path we choose may very well determine the fate of our rivers.” – Peter Skidmore, Walton Family Foundation

“Lave and Doyle’s meticulous empirical and field study of market-based habitat offset mitigation programs convincingly demonstrates how regulatory goals and metrics believed to support good restoration policies can actually drive mitigation entrepreneurs in counterproductive directions. The evidence presented and alternatives proposed in Streams of Revenue make a compelling case for change.” – J.B. Ruhl, David Daniels Allen Distinguished Chair in Law and Co-Director, Energy, Environment, and Land Use Program, Vanderbilt University Law School

Streams of Revenue explores the tenuous relationship between the power of market-based approaches and achievement of environmental goals. Lave and Doyle effectively show how environmental strategies are handled, how they often fail, and why all of this matters to the future of our fragile ecosystems.” – Eran Ben-Joseph, Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, Department of Urban Studies and Planning, MIT
