  Bioeconomics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bioeconomics leans heavily on mathematical modeling and optimal control theory.
The science of bioeconomics is the discipline originating from the synthesis of biology and economics.
It is an attempt to bridge, through the concept of holism and interdisciplinary methodology, the empirical culture of biology and the literary culture of economics through a paradigmatic shift in the development of the economy-environment disciplines such as natural resource economics, environmental economics and ecological economics.

 Fisheries bioeconomics Theory, modelling and management
In this context, use of bioeconomic models in a formal decision analysis that explicitly includes uncertainty has been rarely documented in the primary literature.
A detailed analysis of the basic assumptions of the model used and the estimation of uncertainty associated with the bioeconomic functions and equations fitted in a fishery model (see Chapter 4), should be a common practice to validate model structure and evaluate its performance (e.g.
Although reporting the variance for bioeconomic parameters is attracting increasing attention by fisheries agencies, possible data biases and resulting estimates are rarely discussed and made explicit.

 Pedigo: Economic Thresholds and Economic Injury Levels
Forming the basis of assessment and decision making is bioeconomics, the study of the relationships between pest numbers, host responses to injury, and resultant economic losses (Pedigo 1996).
The relationship of bioeconomics to other elements of an IPM system is shown in Fig.
An important outcome of bioeconomics is the formation of decision rules that are used with management options.

 Humankind Advancing, Vol.12, No.4 October 2001
Bioeconomics consists of a deep interpenetration, within a single course, of economic knowledge with knowledge about our biosphere -- not only our air and water, but all living things residing in it, plants, animals, and humans, including their thoughts and their emotions.
Bioeconomics, to retain its essential interdisciplinarity, must be taught in the same course and by the same teacher.
It also deals with some issues to be resolved by the bioeconomic paradigm, bioeconomics and the concept of entropy, bioeconomics and the concept of coevolution, bioeconomics as interdiscrplinary science, and bioeconomics as postmodern science.

 Fisheries bioeconomics Theory, modelling and management
To mitigate these undesired effects, the bioeconomic literature invokes the allocation of property rights, which in turn must be implemented within a management context.
Static and dynamic bioeconomic models are presented in Chapter 2 as a theoretical framework for the design of intelligent management schemes aiming at sustainable use of fish stocks.
In Chapter 6 we relax the dynamic pool assumption of models developed in Chapters 2, 3 and 4 and introduce spatial bioeconomic considerations in modelling fisheries, notably the distance from ports to fishing grounds in order to further understand short-run decision-making of fishers in their allocation of fishing intensity.

 Bioeconomics as a Subversive Science
In its original coinage, "bioeconomics" referred to the study of how organisms of all kinds earn their living in "nature's economy," with particular emphasis on co-operative interactions and the progressive elaboration of the division of labor (see Hermann Reinheimer, Evolution by Co-operation: A Study in Bioeconomics, 1913).
Thus, the exclusion of the concept of adaptation from mainstream economics may seem to be anachronistic, except for the fact that it challenges some of the most fundamental (and sacred) assumptions and axioms of the dismal science.
Finally, the potential predictive power of a bioeconomics framework in relation to economic behavior and choice-making (ie., the causal dynamics of the "fl box") is also briefly discussed.

 Biological Emergences: Implications for Bioeconomics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Since bioeconomics depends upon biology for its foundational ideas, any shift in theoretical biology must have an impact on bioeconomic theory.
I will take an heuristic approach to bioeconomics by emphasizing aspects of emergent evolution that are particularly relevant.
However, I will suggest how an emergence thesis might be synthesized with a selection antithesis, at the level of the history of life, and leave it to the listeners to make their own bioeconomic inferences.

 Fisheries bioeconomics Theory, modelling and management
The bioeconomic literature invokes the allocation of property rights as a way to mitigate the undesired effects caused by the inherent characteristics of fisheries, and thus to attenuate the risks of stock overexploitation.
In this context, the bioeconomic impacts resulting from alternative management strategies must be valuated, as well as the adequate policy instruments that should be used to satisfy biological and economic criteria.
For this purpose, static and dynamic bioeconomic models have been developed as a theoretical framework for the design of intelligent management schemes aiming at sustainable use of fish stocks.

"...Bioeconomics consists of a deep interpenetration, within a single discipline, of economic knowledge with knowledge about our biosphere -- not only our air and water, but all living things residing in it, plants, animals and humans including their thoughts and their emotions.
It is through these that bioeconomics differs from, and is superior to ecological economics..."
In addition to economics, biology, ecology and education, the author deals with systems theory and its relevance to bioeconomics as well as a wide variety of other relevant topics.

 Bioeconomics
Developed by American economist Gary Becker (1930-), bioeconomics term refers to an area of economics in which sociobiology is applied to explain human behavior in a capitalist economic system.
Becker asserted that the combined assumptions of maximizing behavior, market equilibrium and stable preferences were at the heart of the economic approach.

 Report condemned as one-sided / Government cut out benefits of saving threatened trout
They were put at $230 million to $300 million over 10 years, adversely affecting hydropower, logging and highway construction.
Gone from the published analysis, which was written for the Fish and Wildlife Service by a Missoula, Mont., consulting firm called Bioeconomics Inc., were 55 pages that detailed the benefits of protecting bull trout.
Estimated at $215 million over 20 to 30 years, they include revenue from sport fishing, reduced drinking water costs and increased water for irrigation, especially late in the summer when streams run low.
