About this book

Identifies some of the hidden costs of unsustainable production, and also considers examples where conservation management has failed. The authors argue that sustainable land management is possible, and that conservation and production interests can be satisfied. They go on to show how a sustainable approach can be applied throughout Europe. The approach adopted is the one that has underpinned the development of the European Union Biodiversity strategy and is becoming a compelling force for change in Europe's decision-making processes.

This is a complex issue but the authors provide us with a very clear way through. Arguments are well laid out, diagrams are clear and the brief nature of the text encourages students to dip in and read! TEG News, Dec 2001 "The whole product has been put together excellently. A must-buy for the library."
