PREEMPTIVE HABITAT DESTRUCTION AND THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT: THE CASE OF THE RED-COCKADED WOODPECKER
Jeffrey A. Michael
1998 Annual meeting, August 2-5, Salt Lake City, UT from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
An economic model illustrating a southern forest landowner's incentive to increase timber harvest in response to the risk of red-cockaded woodpecker colonization and subsequent regulation under the Endangered Species Act is developed. The empirical results show that industrial landownders respond to these incentives, whereas non-industrial private forest landowners do not.
