Description

"Protecting Life on Earth is an excellent introduction to conservation biology: concise yet comprehensive, and full of interesting real-life examples of conservation problems and solutions. This could be the basis for an introductory course, or just interesting reading for someone wanting to learn what this field is about."--Dr. Daniel Simberloff, University of Tennessee

"An excellent introduction to the science and policy of conservation biology for anyone interested in becoming better informed about today's pressing environmental challenges; nicely complemented by discussions of environmental economics and law, and including real-world conservation problems and the ways in which they are being addressed."--Wayne P. Sousa, University of California, Berkeley

"I have never seen a more comprehensive and succinct presentation of conservation biology--the most important topic of our time. It bridges the gap between science and people with easy to read, non-technical prose. Conservation is everybody's business, and Protecting life on Earth is a must read for everyone who cares about the future of the planet."--Mike Dombeck, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point University, System Fellow of Global Conservation, former Chief, U.S. Forest Service
