PREDICTING THE EFFECT OF LOCAL LAND USE REGULATIONS ON BIODIVERSITY IN THE WESTERN UNITED STATES

Christian Langpap and JunJie Wu

No 20038, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A leading cause of biodiversity decline is the habitat destruction associated with urban development. We use a database of county-level land use regulations to analyze the effects of local land use regulations on land use changes. We use the results of this analysis and a species-habitat associations matrix to conduct simulations that relate changes in local land use regulations to changes in biodiversity through predicted changes in land use.
