Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World
For decades people have unquestioningly accepted the idea that our goal is to preserve nature in its pristine, pre-human state. But many scientists have come to see this as an outdated dream that thwarts bold new plans to save the environment and prevents us from having a fuller relationship with nature. Humans have changed the landscapes they inhabit since prehistory, and climate change means even the remotest places now bear the fingerprints of humanity.
In Rambunctious Garden, Emma Marris describes innovative conservation approaches, including rewilding, assisted migration, and the embrace of so-called novel ecosystems, takes readers to meet leading scientists and environmentalists, and visits imaginary Edens, designer ecosystems, and Pleistocene parks.
