Environmental Policy and Biodiversity by R. Edward Grumbine
Book DescriptionScientists and policymakers must work together if solutions to the biodiversity crisis are to be found. Yet all too often, scientific data are unknown or incomprehensible to policymakers, and political realities are not fully appreciated by scientists."Environmental Policy and Biodiversity" addresses that problem by presenting both an overview of important concepts in the field of conservation biology and an examination of the strengths and limitations of the policymaking process. Topics covered include: the ethical and scientific bases of conservation biology the effectiveness of existing environmental policy in protecting biodiversity case studies from California, the Great Lakes region, southern Appalachia, and the Florida panhandle an examination of overall environmental policy goals and processes Featuring provocative and clearly argued essays from a range of disciplines, "Environmental Policy and Biodiversity" provides resource professionals with valuable insight into conservation issues, and can serve as a useful tool in both graduate and undergraduate courses in conservation biology and environmental policy.
