About this book

The Sibthorp Seminar questioned the science underlying contemporary conservation and the rationale for an innovative approach through ecosystem management. The discussion amongst participants led to distillation of the ten principles of ecosystem management. These were reviewed by a wide range of experts and elaborated at the World Conservation Congress in Montreal. Ecosystem Management: Questions For Science And Society brings together the original Sibthorp papers plus additional material presented in Montreal. Contributing authors are: Mike Acreman (Institute of Hydrology, Wallingford), Tundi Agardy (Conservation International), Gerardo Budowski, Brian Dayton (Boston University), Vernon Heywood (University of Reading), Martin Holdgate, Brian Huntley (University of Durham), Phil Ineson (ITE), John Lawton (NERC), Edward Maltby (Royal Holloway Institute, University of London), Hilary Masundire (University of Botswana), Richard Primack (Boston University), Phil Reid (Plymouth Marine Laboratory), Krystyna Urbanska (Swiss Federal institute of Technology) and Antony Weir (Royal Holloway Institute, University of London).
A thoughtful and valuable contribution to the growing debate on the ecosystem approach to conservation and management.
