About this book

Collection of essays presenting new protected area theory, method and practice. It reinforces the theme of regional planning which is vital if North America is to retain continental biodiversity, and considers the history, ecology, policy and planning of protected areas while raising awareness of their contribution to society. Moves readers from a mentality of the past that saw protected areas as "fortresses," to a wider understanding where protected areas are seen as interdependent with other landscapes in the matters of biodiversity, ecological integrity and environmental health.
