Media reviews
This book challenges conventional wisdom and explores contradictions in how people view and manage natural parks and wild places...Ecosystems are now recognized as dynamic systems with interdependencies, complexities, and uncertainties. As humans have altered some situations, all other factors have not remained constant, leading to unprecedented conditions across ecosystems. With ecosystem unpredictability on the increase, the policy and regulatory environments for park and wilderness areas have become both more complex and more ambiguous. Chapter contributors critique the hands-off approach to natural area management, the conceptual framework of ecosystem integrity, management for the preservation of historical conditions, and resilience in systems as a management framework. Lessons learned and frameworks for planning provide a present-day baseline and orientation for the future. This book is bound to become the reference point for ecosystem management studies.
