Brendan’s main research interests are in regards to ecosystem services. Governance, valuation and distributional concerns are focal points of this research since the costs and benefits of ecosystem conservation (for the production of services) are heterogeneous across time and space. He is also interested in the current global economic growth paradigm and its consequences for sustainability and equity. Ongoing research projects include: evaluating the ‘insurance value’ of biodiversity in the provision of ecosystem services; creating a framework for understanding how ecosystem structure, function and process relate to the literature’s use of the term ecosystem services; global scale mapping and valuation of ecosystem services using GIS land cover maps and environmental economic valuation techniques.
