A sustainability framework for assessing trade-offs in ecosystem services Ecology and Society
Cavender-Bares, Jeannine; Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota; Institute on Environment, University of Minnesota; cavender@umn.edu; Polasky, Stephen; Department of Applied Economics, University of Minnesota; Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota; Institute on Environment, University of Minnesota; polasky@umn.edu; King, Elizabeth; Biological Sciences, Odum School of Ecology, University of Georgia; Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, University of Georgia; egking@uga.edu.
Achieving sustainability, i.e., meeting the needs of current populations without compromising the needs of future generations, is the major challenge facing global society in the 21st century. Navigating the inherent trade-offs between provisioning, regulating, cultural, and supporting ecosystem services, and doing so in a way that does not compromise natural capital needed to provide services in the future, is critical for sustainable resource management. Here we build upon existing literature, primarily from economics and ecology, to present an analytical framework that integrates (1) the ecological mechanisms that underpin ecosystem services, (2) biophysical trade-offs and inherent limits that constrain management options, (3) preferences and values...

Agricultural Trade Preferences and the Developing Countries AgEcon
Wainio, John; Shapouri, Shahla; Trueblood, Michael A.; Gibson, Paul R..
Nonreciprocal trade preference programs originated in the 1970s under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) as an effort by high-income developed countries to provide tariff concessions for low-income countries. The goal of the programs was to increase export earnings, promote industrialization, and stimulate economic growth in the lower income countries. This study analyzes detailed trade and tariff data for the United States and the European Union (the two largest nonreciprocal preference donors) to determine the extent to which the programs have increased exports from beneficiary countries. For those products where the margins of preference are large and where beneficiaries have a comparative advantage and the capacity to expand production, these...

Alabama Restaurant Preferences and Willingness to Pay for Local Food: A Choice Based Approach AgEcon
Reynolds-Allie, Kenesha; Fields, Deacue.
Direct marketing to restaurants has become increasingly popular as chefs desire high quality, fresh foods to meet the demand of their customers who are becoming more health conscious. Restaurants accounted for approximately 70 percent of the 2009 total food expenditures, and as a result represent a tremendous potential for developing a sustainable network with local growers. This study seeks to determine restaurant/chefs’ preferences for local food in Alabama using choice based conjoint analysis, as well as, determine challenges faced by restaurants interested in purchasing locally. Availability and lack of knowledge are found to be the major barriers to purchasing locally. Results also suggest there is great potential for direct marketing to...

Analysis of the Preferences for a New Convenient Seafood Product: Empirical Application for Spain and Norway AgEcon
Dopico, Domingo Calvo; Olsen, Svein Ottar; Tudoran, Alina.
Fish and seafood products represent a very healthy food, low in saturated fats and offer an excellent source of protein essential for our health. However, very often, consumer behaviour would seem to infer that seafood products do not rank particularly highly in terms of preference, this being due to the perception of various physical and psychological costs, which represent barriers to consumption. Consequently, there is an opportunity to develop new tailor-made seafood products more adapted to recent demand. The aim of this study is to analyse the overall preference of young consumers for such a new seafood product. The experiments were carried out in two European countries: Spain and Norway, with samples of 349 and 296 young people respectively. The...

Consumer Preferences Determine Resilience of Ecological-Economic Systems Ecology and Society
Derissen, Sandra; Department of Economics, University of Kiel, Germany; derissen@economics.uni-kiel.de; Quaas, Martin F; Department of Economics, University of Kiel, Germany; quaas@economics.uni-kiel.de.
We perform a model analysis to study the origins of limited resilience in coupled ecological-economic systems. We demonstrate that under open access to ecosystems for profit-maximizing harvesting forms, the resilience properties of the system are essentially determined by consumer preferences for ecosystem services. In particular, we show that complementarity and relative importance of ecosystem services in consumption may significantly decrease the resilience of (almost) any given state of the system. We conclude that the role of consumer preferences and management institutions is not just to facilitate adaptation to, or transformation of, some natural dynamics of ecosystems. Rather, consumer preferences and management institutions are themselves...

Determining factors for an increase in consumption of fresh vegetable by habitants in the Caribbean region of Colombia Acta Agron. (Palmira)
Martínez-Reina,Antonio María.
Abstract The aim of this study was to establish elements to understand the consumers reasons to increase the quantities of fresh vegetables consumed in the Caribbean Region of Colombia. With information from 308 surveys applied randomly in seven cities of the Caribbean Region and using a structured survey that included variables such as age, family composition, prices, income, a Logit econometric model was formulated. Furthermore, with the contingent valuation method, parameters were estimated using maximum likelihood; moreover, the reasons that explain the possibility that families increase vegetable consumption were identified. Results allow us to appreciate first that 53 % of the surveyed respondents would be willing to increase consumption. The...

IDENTIFYING A REDUCED SET OF SALIENT ATTRIBUTES THAT INFLUENCE CONSUMERS' CHOICE AMONG WHOLE, LOW-FAT, AND SKIM MILK FOR BEVERAGE USE AgEcon
Miles, Heiko; Schwager, Steven J.; Lenz, John E..
Fishbein's Theory of Reasoned Action models behavior as based on beliefs and evaluations on a small set of salient attributes. Two methods of reducing large sets of potentially salient attributes into a smaller set of salient attributes are proposed. The methods are based on expectancy valuation analysis and logistic regression analysis. When applied to consumer beliefs and evaluations on 59 attributes over three milk types (whole, low-fat, and skim milk), both methods identify reduced sets of attributes. The reduced attribute sets are then used to model whether or not respondents drink a particular milk type. Results indicate that the reduced models are statistically significant in explaining choice of m"ilk type although there is some loss of information...

Let's Eat Out: Americans Weigh Taste, Convenience, and Nutrition AgEcon
Stewart, Hayden; Blisard, Noel; Jolliffe, Dean.
Whether eating out or buying carry-out, Americans are consuming more and more of their calories from full-service and fast-food restaurant fare. The share of daily caloric intake from food purchased and/or eaten away from home increased from 18 percent to 32 percent between the late 1970s and the middle 1990s, and the away-from-home market grew to account for about half of total food expenditures in 2004, up from 34 percent in 1974. Analysis of a survey of U.S. consumers indicates that respondents want convenience and an enjoyable dining experience, but the desire for health also plays a role as does diet-health knowledge.

Pilot study for feeding preferences and grazing behavior in two breeds of sheep on a secondary succession of the Chiloé Archipelago Ciencia e Investigación Agraria
Gallardo,María A; Pulido,Rubén; de la Barra,Rodrigo; Martínez,María E.
M.A. Gallardo, R. de la Barra, and M.E. Martínez. 2014. Pilot study for feeding preferences and grazing behavior in two breeds of sheep on a secondary succession of the Chiloé Archipelago. Cien. Inv. Agr. 41(2):249-254. A pilot study was undertaken to determine the pattern of feeding preferences and grazing behavior of the Chilota breed of sheep in the Chiloé Archipelago. First, eight Chilota and eight Suffolk Down ewes were faced with different numbers of plant species (offered only for 10 min), after fasting and after grazing a calafatal, a secondary succession dominated by shrubs. The experiment was repeated four times within a period of 22 d and included a 1-month pre-experimental period. Second, six Chilota and six Suffolk Down ewes, randomly selected...

Präferenzen für unterschiedliche Produktionsverfahren und Herkunftsbezeichnungen – dargestellt am Beispiel eines Lebensmittels aus der Direktvermarktung AgEcon
Zenner, Silvia; Wirthgen, Bernd; Altmann, Marianne.
Because consumers’ preferences are relevant determinants in the purchase decision, their measurement seems to be extremely important. Therefore, the article presents selected results of preference measurement (conjoint-analysis) with special regard to different food production modes (organic production, conventional production and production reflecting animal welfare aspects) and labelling of food origin (out of the region, from farm-gate and without labelling of the food origin). The empirical research shows surprising results: the organic produce is not as strongly preferred as the product alternative reflecting the animal welfare aspect. As a consequence, marketing-strategies should pay much more attention to animal welfare aspects, whereas organic...

Process versus product: which determines consumer demand for genetically modified apples? AgEcon
Kaye-Blake, William; Bicknell, Kathryn; Saunders, Caroline M..
One debate in the literature regarding consumers’ reactions to genetically modified food (GMF) centres on whether consumers react to the process of gene technology or to the specific GMF products. Results from a choice experiment survey in New Zealand indicate that consumers are heterogeneous with regard to GMF and that some modifications are viewed more positively than others. These findings suggest that for some consumers the process of gene technology is the decisive factor in evaluatingGMF, while for others the different potential GMF products are valued according to their enhanced attributes.

Rational Inefficiencies AgEcon
Bogetoft, Peter; Hougaard, Jens Leth.
In this paper, we suggest that inefficiency may be an indirect, on-the-job compensation to agents in an organization. We show how to use actual production data to reveal the trade-offs between different inefficiencies (slacks). Moreover, we discuss how to use this to improve productivity analysis as well as decision making and incentive provisions in organizations.

The Demand for Food Away from Home: Do Other Preferences Compete with Our Desire to Eat Healthfully? AgEcon
Stewart, Hayden; Blisard, Noel; Jolliffe, Dean; Bhuyan, Sanjib.
Health-oriented government agencies have had limited success at encouraging Americans to eat a healthful diet. One reason may be that other preferences compete with our desire to eat healthfully. We explore the effect of consumer preferences on the demand for food away from home, including frequency of eating out and choice of outlet type. Preferences for convenience and ambience are found to influence behavior. Furthermore, omitting these variables from econometric models can bias the estimated effect of preferences for a healthful diet.

The Policy Relevance of Choice Modelling: An Application to the Ningaloo and Proposed Capes Marine Parks AgEcon
McCartney, Abbie.
One issue surrounding the use of Choice Modelling (CM) in policy is whether public and expert preferences diverge regarding particular environmental attributes. To investigate this issue two case studies use CM to value ecological attributes for the Ningaloo and proposed Capes marine parks in Western Australia. Public and expert populations are sampled, with consideration of information effects. Attention is also given to whether policy relevance can be improved by considering not only desired outcomes of the hypothetical policy options in the CM exercise, but also the management process used to achieve these outcomes. Preliminary results of the public sample identify significant impacts of both information and management process effects.

Understanding Market potential for biodiesel in Spain: A Pilot study based on consumer preferences AgEcon
Gracia, Azucena; Barreiro-Hurlé, Jesús; Perez y Perez, Luis.
The production and use of biodiesel is an important alternative in Europe to diminish the emission of gases in order to fulfill the Kyoto protocol goals. Supported by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the production of biodiesel has increased in Europe but the consumption is only of considerable importance in some countries. In Spain, the consumption of biodiesel is still low compared to other EU countries. The aim of the paper is to analyze consumers’ preferences for biodiesel in Spain. To do that a choice experimental approach has been used to assess consumers’ valuation of different diesel options and calculate the willingness to pay for biodiesel. The data come from a recent survey conducted in Spain (Region of Aragón). Results indicate that diesel...

US and German Consumer Preferences for Ground Beef Packaged Under a Modified Atmosphere AgEcon
Grebitus, Carola; Jensen, Helen H.; Roosen, Jutta.
Consumers' preferences for meat quality attributes such as color influence their purchasing decisions. Better understanding of consumer preferences can help meat processors and others attain effective product development and marketing and inform public policy decisions on nutrition and food safety education. Modified atmosphere packaging extends the shelf-life of fresh meat and, with the inclusion of carbon monoxide, achieves dramatic color stabilization. The value that US and German consumers' place on ground beef packaging techniques was quantifies by means of non-hypothetical choice experiments. The studies' results can benefit food producers and retailers who make decisions about investing in new packaging methods by providing quantitative measures of...
