|Abstract: ||The assessment of alternative forest management strategies should
account not only for the private benefits to forest landowners but
also for the ecological, environmental and economic benefits valued
by society. There are a number of empirical valuation methods
that may contribute to that assessment. These methods involve
several steps: data acquisition, model specification and estimation.
In this paper, this approach is illustrated in the context of a
survey regarding alternative management strategies for a forest
area in Central Portugal by implementing a contingent valuation
experiment where an advanced landscape visualisation technique
is employed to generate the visual information conveyed in the
valuation scenarios. Several econometric model specifications are
considered as well as alternative approaches to handle zero willingness
to pay values and protest responses. The results obtained
suggest the potential of the proposed approach for an effective
comparison of alternative forest management strategies|
