The structure of this report is as follows. In Section 2 we introduce economic methods for environmental and biodiversity valuation, and in particular the total economic value model. Sections 3 through 7 will advance five distinct but related classes of criticisms of economic environmental valuation, and in each we will suggest the way in which alternative valuation methods contain the resources to help address those criticisms.
