Kevin Boyle and Richard C. Bishop

No 278711, 1985 Annual Meeting, August 4-7, Ames, Iowa from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The components of value for a wildlife resource are discussed, with emphasis on existence value. A simple model is proposed and preliminary results of an application to valuing endangered species of wildlife are presented. The empirical results indicate that significant nonuse values may be associated with endangered species of wildlife.
