Bio

Charles Perrings was appointed Professor of Environmental Economics at Arizona State University in August 2005. Previous appointments include Professor of Environmental Economics and Environmental Management at the University of York; Professor of Economics at the University of California, Riverside; and Director of the Biodiversity Program of the Beijer Institute, Stockholm. Until 2005 he was editor of the Cambridge University Press journal, Environment and Development Economics, and he remains on the editorial board of this and several other journals in environmental, resource and ecological economics, and in conservation ecology. He is Past President of the International Society for Ecological Economics, a society formed to bring together the insights of the ecological and economic sciences to aid understanding and management of environmental problems. He Chairs the ecoSERVICES Core Project of Diversitas, the international program of biodiversity science, and a member of the Earth Systems Science Partnership. At ASU he co-directs the ecoSERVICES Group with Ann Kinzig.

Research Interests

His research interests in environmental, resource and ecological economics include the modeling of dynamical ecological-economic systems, the management of environmental public goods under uncertainty, and the environmental implications of economic development. His applied research focuses on the economics of biodiversity change, freshwater and marine resources. Major research projects include the NSF-funded Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Training Network (BESTNet), the ecoSERVICES Core Project of Diversitas, and an SFAz-funded project on the urban ecosystem services.
