Systematists, ATBI'er and others might be interested in the following...
While the paper cited doesn't valuate systematics, it does try to

Dear CNIE subscribers,

CSF (Communications for a Sustainable Future) is the host of the CNIE
listserv.  CSF is the co-sponsor of an online forum which we think
might interest CNIE subscribers.  The topic is

          THE VALUE OF THE WORLD'S ECOSYSTEM SERVICES
                      AND NATURAL CAPITAL

The forum is a discussion of an ambitious project which is the first
attempt to place a dollar figure on the annual value of global
ecological life-support systems.  The article appeared in the May 15th
issue of NATURE and was discussed on NPR.

NATURE is making a copy of the article available online.  Links to
the article plus other material about the article can be found
at      http://csf.colorado.edu/ISEE
which will also contain the searchable proceedings.

The authors of the article are ecologists, geographers and economists:
   Robert Costanza, Ralph d'Arge, Stephen Farber, Monica Grasso, Bruce
   Hannon, Karin Limburg, Shahid Naeem, Robert V. O'Neill, Jose Paruelo,

The seminar is co-sponsored by:
     ISEE: International Society for Ecological Economics
     CSF:  Communications for a Sustainable Future

The seminar opens May 19 and is planned for 6 weeks (June 30) in the
hopes of obtaining careful, thoughtful commentary to further the goal of
appropriately measuring the value of ecological life-support systems.
This is an open but carefully moderated discussion.
