About this book

A companion volume to "The Endangered Species Act at Thirty: Renewing the Conservation Promise", published by Island Press in fall 2005, this new book examines the key policy tools available for protecting biodiversity in the United States by revisiting some basic questions in conservation: What are we trying to protect and why? What are the limits of species-based conservation? Can we develop new conservation strategies that are more ecologically and economically viable than past approaches?
