The authours use experimental surveys to investigate the association between individuals' knowledge of particular wildlife speciesand their stated willingness to allocate funds to Conserve each. The nature of variations in these allocations between species(e.g. thier dispersion) as participants knowledge increases is examined. factors influencing these changes are suggested. Willingness-to-pay allocations are found not measure the economic value of species,but are shown to be policy relevent. The results indicate that poorly known species, e.g. in remote areas, may obtain relativety less conservation support than they deserve.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
