In biodiversity offsetting, developers are permitted to degrade or destroy a protected species or ecosystem in one place in exchange for "offsetting" the biological entity elsewhere. Professor Takacs reviews this growing practice, discusses its pros and cons, and highlights best emerging practices if a jurisdiction does allow such offsetting.
