E. between biodiversity as the means of securing resilience, and resilience as 1 A formal treatment of the concept of sustainability deriving from Holling's resilience is offered in Common and Perrings [1992]. The concept of sustainability that comes out of this approach is very close to that defined with respect to agricultural systems by Conway [1987]. W. A. Perrings the means of securing sustainable development This aspect of the argument, it should be said, is not uncontroversial within biology.

W. A. Perrings and Ehrlich, 1992]. The opportunities forgone as a result of biodiversity change will accordingly depend on both the spatial and temporal spread of the effects of biodiversity change, on the degree to which they are reversible, and on the potential for species substitution. The point here is that while species extinction is irreversible by definition, so too are many local effects even if they do not involve the global loss of genetic material. Extinction may not be the worst outcome of biodiversity change.

The first relates to intellectual property rights, the second to international resource transfers to compensate the developing world for the incremental cost of forgoing the development of resource uses that sacrifice biodiversity. Both are important as we shall later see, but both also fail to address the underlying problem of the economic incentives to destroy biodiversity. 1 The issue of property rights in genetic diversity is raised by the stylised empirical fact that, by and large, the South has the genetic resources but the North develops them to create new crop varieties and pharmaceutical products.
