Media reviews
A refreshing new look at one of society's most durable issues. The diverse points-of-view challenge conventional wisdom and stimulate the intellect. - J.E. de Steiguer, University of Arizona "This book offers an insightful and provocative look at the evolving definition of resource sustainability, encompassing diverse resource uses, and essential ecosystem services along with commodity production. Its review of past trends and the current conditions of America's natural resources clearly illustrates the accelerating pace of change, and the growing challenge this poses for scientists and resource managers alike." - V. Alaric Sample, President, Pinchot Institute for Conservation"
