Leopold expanded the boundaries of Science and Environmental Decision Making book was morally considerable from human society to include biological communities.

See for example Andelman, Sandy J. Morone, E. How do you assess the beliefs of those who disagree with you? The science of ecology has contributed a most important concept: the ecosystem. For ecologists it will bridge the gap to economics.

If a consensus is not reached the agency proceeds with rulemaking using discussions as a guide, and drafting, circulating, and publishing NPRM. The idea of the ecosystem has contributed to the philosophical idea of holism, or the idea that a system has properties that can only be perceived by looking at components, their inter-relationships, and the functioning of the whole system.

The work of Maurice Allais and Daniel Ellsberg showed that human behavior has systematic and sometimes important departures from expected-utility maximization. Lesa L. For example, if a coin is flipped to tails for a couple of turns, it still has the same probability of doing so; however it seems more likely, intuitively, for it to roll heads soon.

Environmental Regulation Through Strategic Planning. Schneider, Anne and Helen Ingram. The scientists pointed out that the Working Group would not be capable of delivering an ecologically sound reserve design without affirmative direction from the scientists.
