Natural Resources and Property Theory

I'm teaching a property theory seminar this semester, and am putting the materials together as I go.  The general approach of the seminar is to apply property theory to some real-world property problems.  I have a two-class unit on property theory and natural resources.  The first day is some basic theory (Tragedy of the Commons, Demsetz) and some reading on fisheries issues.  The second day is open.  I'd like to include some material on water rights and maybe one other issue.  Can anyone suggest some additional reading on property theory in the natural resources context?  Could be a theoretical article, a case that presents a good theoretical issue, or anything else.  If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail.  Thanks.

Thanks. Another reader sent me an e-mail suggesting Stone's Should Trees Have Standing, which is great.
