by


Kareiva and Marvier offer a tour du force of conservation for the 21st Century. Together they relate with unparalleled, first-hand experience the innovative approaches to conservation being honed around the world today from advances in fundamental, interdisciplinary research through to their application in some of humanity's most breathtakingly difficult practical and ethical challenges. Their account is rigorous and engaging, with fresh questions, data, and quantitative analysis interwoven with vivid stories of actual conservation practice in the field. --Gretchen Daily, Stanford University
