Product Description

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?
