Ecosystems have many potential uses and values, and law and policy can affect ecological systems in extraordinarily diverse ways. This chapter argues that psychology can be helpful in generating legal strategies for more effectively managing ecosystems and natural resources. To that end, the chapter specifically addresses the operation—and psychological vulnerabilities—of influential decision-making frameworks within environmental law: the sustainability framework, the precautionary principle, and cost-benefit analysis.

Keywords:   ecosystem management, natural resources, sustainability, precautionary principle, cost-benefit analysis
