About this book

Thorough introduction to this complex topic. As the authors rightly stress, though the loss of biodiversity is widely recognised a lack of vision combined with basic shortfalls of knowledge impedes the search for practical solutions to this most pressing of problems. This book seeks to rectify this state, with analysis of the limitations of past strategies, and the introduction of new conceptual and practical tools which hopefully will lead to successfully implemented programmes in the future.

Media reviews
...offers the most comprehensive direction to date on what the United States can do to stop the downward spiral of ecosystem deterioration and to implement policies of ono net losso of the nationAEs native biological riches.... Who needs this book? Conservation biologists should read it to better understand the challenges and practical demands of putting theory into practice. Managers should read it to more fully understand the rationale and context for new management concepts, and to be better able to apply the concepts toward useful purpose in ecosystem management.... Actually this would be a good book for all citizens to read, if only to see what could be were we to muster the will to alter our individual and collective behaviors. --Winifred B. Kessler, Journal of Forestry
