  • "Valuing a Spatially Variable Environmental Resource: Reducing Non-Point-Source Pollution in Green Bay, Wisconsin"

Moore R, Provenchar B, Bishop RC, Land Economics 87(1): 45-59 Feb 2011. This article investigates the value of reducing non-point-source pollution in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

  • "Accounting for Respondent Uncertainty to Improve Willingness-to-Pay Estimates"

Moore R, Bishop RC, Provencher B, et al., Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics 58 (3): 381-401 Sep 2010. 

  • "Does small Accounting for dam removal affect local property values? An empirical analysis"

Provencher, B; Sarakinos, H; Meyer, T, Contemporary Economic Policy 26 (2): 187-197, Apr 2008. The primary conclusions that emerge from the data are that shoreline frontage along small impoundments confers no increase in residential property value compared to frontage along free-flowing streams and that nonfrontage residential property located in the vicinity of a free-flowing stream is more valuable than similar nonfrontage property in the vicinity of a small impoundment.

  • "A Dynamic Principal Agent Model of Human-Mediated Aquatic Species Invasion"
MacPherson A, Moore R, Provencher B, Agricultural and Economic Resources Review 35 (1): 144-154 2006.
