Myth of Wild Africa by Jonathan S. Adams

Book Description

Most people would feel a great loss if elephants, rhinos, or gorillas were to become extinct, but would we willingly move our families, change our means of earning a living, and disrupt our culture to prevent their extinction? People living in rural Africa are being asked to do just this by the world community. The Myth of Wild Africa explores a joint African/Western approach to conservation with the goal of returning control to the African nations.

Nature's Fortune by Jonathan S. Adams Nature's Fortune, Paperback (November 2015)

Nature's Fortune shows how viewing nature as green infrastructure allows for breakthroughs not only in conservation, protecting water supplies; enhancing the health of fisheries; making cities more sustainable, liveable, and safe; and dealing with unavoidable climate change, but in economic progress, as well.

Precious Heritage by Jonathan S. Adams Precious Heritage, Hardback (February 2000)

The United States harbours an array of ecosystems which in turn sustain a variety of plant and animal life. This illustrated volume considers how species and ecosystems are faring, what is threatening them, and what is needed to protect the United States' remaining natural heritage.
