When a species is threatened with extinction, the loss of value in fact concerns an entire ecosystem that is impoverished or may be threatened with collapse. For the economist, the real difficulty with biodiversity is that a value has to be given to the diversity of life that clearly does not lie in adding up the value of each species, but much more in their multiple interrelationships that provide us with so many services essential for life. The complex issue cannot be evaded if green capital is really to be incorporated into the functioning of the economy.
