(The link above leads to a list of publications by Dr. Costanza. Most if not all of them are available as PDFs.) 

Dr. Costanza has published various insightful and interesting analysis of how economics and the environment intersect. His research focuses on 

"on the interface between ecological and economic systems, particularly at larger temporal and spatial scales. This includes landscape level spatial simulation modeling; analysis of energy and material flows through economic and ecological systems; valuation of ecosystem services, biodiversity, and natural capital; and analysis of dysfunctional incentive systems and ways to correct them."

One of his papers published in 1997 specifically address the economic value of the world's ecosystems services.
