This book highlights the limits of the ecosystem service approach to measure and assess in monetary terms the ecosystems and how the human race uses them. The author shows how this approach has boosted and multiplied the attempts at monetary evaluation of the biodiversity. Exploiting and then quantifying Nature through monetary assessment are part of a Nature merchandising dynamic with conservation strategies built on market logics.
