Title: Mark Colyvan
Value of Information Studies in Conservation Biology
Mark Colyvan (University of Sydney)
Abstract:  It has been mostly assumed that more and better quality data  
will lead to better conservation management decisions. Indeed, this  
assumption lies behind, and motivates, a great deal of work in conservation  
biology. Of course, more data can lead to better decisions in some cases  
but decision-theoretic models of the value of information show that in many  
cases the cost of the data is too high and thus not worth the effort of  
collecting. While such value-of-information studies are well known in  
economics and decision theory circles, their applications in conservation  
biology are relatively new and rather controversial. I discuss some reasons  
to be wary of wholesale acceptance of such studies.
