About this book

This book provides a comprehensive approach to the complex problem of species extinction. This is an authoritative guide to the history of the ESA, its most critical sections, the twists and turns of its implementation, and the cutting-edge issues facing the protection of endangered wildlife and its habitat. It begins with the building blocks of the ESA: the processes for listing species and designating critical habitat. Because the ESA s goal is to bring listed species to a point where they no longer need the Act's protection, the mechanism to guide this effort is the recovery plan. Subsequent chapters address key aspects of the act's application: the duty to consult and avoid jeopardy, and the Act's take prohibitions and its exemptions. The topics addressed include the jeopardy/critical habitats modification prohibition and the required interagency consultation process; Native American rights; the section 9 take provision and its compliance issues; threatened and endangered plants; international trade restrictions; citizen suits; landowner incentives; state endangered species acts; nanotechnology; and global warming.
