This study uses meta-regression to produce a value function for wetland regulating services including flood control, water supply, and nutrient recycling. This function can then be used to transfer those values to other wetland sites.
Using value transfer methods, this study monetizes the economic value of carbon sequestration, reduced sedimentation, and waterfowl production across various land-use scenarios in the Prairie Pothole Region of North and South Dakota.
The value of the U.S. National Wildlife Refuge System in the contiguous U.S. is calculated using a point estimate benefit transfer approach for climate regulation, disturbance prevention, freshwater regulation and supply, waste assimilation and nutrient regulation, and habitat provision.
This article overviews seven separate Environmental Protection Agency applications of the benefit transfer approach to estimating the total economic value of clean water as they apply to the Clean Water Act. Common concerns and recurring themes are discussed so that similar analyses can be more efficient in the future.
This study uses a point estimate benefit transfer and a meta-regression function transfer to quantify the economic benefits, including tourism and existence values, associated with the expansion of sea otter populations along the Santa Barbara coast.
By integrating a recreational fishing demand model with an ecological model and a meta-regression utility model, this study estimates the economic losses associated with the partial and complete use of existing surface mining permits.
This study utilizes a point estimate benefit transfer method and an original stated choice experiment to value Georgia's private forests to compare the results, focusing on the differences in payment and priority results between the two. This study provides valuable insights for caution when embarking on benefit transfer or state choice analyses.
Conducted for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District, this study uses benefit transfer methods to quantify the economic value of ecosystem services that could be affected by restoration activities in South Florida's Everglades.
Benefit transfer techniques are utilized to estimate the value of the Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Value categories include willingness-to-pay for preservation of cultural heritage, hiking, and viewing rock art sites.
This study used meta-regression to identify the relationships between willingness-to-pay for water quality improvements and important independent variables. This research also serves as a guide to conducting primary research that facilitates its use in future meta-analyses.
