Literature on Biodiversity Offsets

This sec­tion will include all lit­er­a­ture on bio­di­ver­sity off­sets and impact mit­i­ga­tion that I will stum­ble upon with a bit of a review or brief com­ment if I find the time. I would be most grate­ful for hints to any (and I am sure there are a lot) pub­li­ca­tions, pre­sen­ta­tions etc. I might not be aware of. Thank you in advance!

Please find a (pre­lim­i­nary) lit­er­a­ture list here as pdf.
