About this book

By the end of the century as many as one hundred species per day may be becoming extinct. The US Congress passed its first Endangered Species Preservation Act in 1966. The contributors in this book provide a unique and comprehensive overview of the law's conception and history and, more important, its potential for protecting the remaining endangered species.
