S (1994) laboratory valuation experiments on market and nonmarket goods. Therefore, the choice of value measure will depend on a clear definition of the technical and legal substitution possibilities for the resource or service in question. 1 illustrates the relationship between the WTP and WTA measures of value. The vertical axis represents the level of pollution, measured, for example, in an ambient concentration level. The horizontal axis reflects an individual's level of wealth. The set of curved lines that originate from the horizontal axis reflect the individual's preferences for income and for avoiding pollution-the set of utility functions.

The set of curved lines that originate from the horizontal axis reflect the individual's preferences for income and for avoiding pollution-the set of utility functions. Each point on a utility function represents different combinations of pollution and wealth that leave the individual at the same level of satisfaction. The slope of a utility curve shows the willingness of the individual to trade between wealth and pollution while maintaining the same level of utility. The slope of the utility function is called the marginal rate of substitution-the willingness to trade pollution for wealth while holding utility constant.

But as nonmarket valuation advances so do new controversies and debates. Consider four topics-total value and warm glows, value formation and preference learning, dynamic inconsistency, 38 Shogren and Crocker and endogenous risk. These issues must be addressed if nonmarket valuation is to help guide the conservation strategy of the Great Plains. Total Value and Warm Glows The most difficult policy question confronting policymakers in the Great Plains is the management and valuation of regional ecosystem and biodiversity issues.
