From Publishers Weekly When it comes to protecting the wilderness, national parks, no matter how large, are just not effective: that's the core argument advanced by Adams, a conservation biologist (The Myth of Wild Africa). Instead of policies that focus scarce economic resources, shrinking political clout and waning emotional energy on scattered wildlife parks and preserves that isolate and often degrade the fauna and flora they're meant to sustain, the author favors a system of "landscape connectivity"—wilderness corridors through which animals as large as bears or as small as field mice (and even seeds and pollen) might migrate between patches of sustainable habitat. Crafting such corridors requires community support, and Adams cites several success stories: across a vast swath of southern Arizona, for example, where cooperative ranchers met with concerned environmentalists about using land more wisely; in California's crowded Orange County, where one maverick scientist is creating safe passageways for pumas; and in the Florida Everglades, where in 1991 the state government and a coalition of environmental organizations bought 60,000 acres of company-owned land, linking two existing preserves to create an expanse of wetlands. Fertile with fresh thinking, this book is an uncommonly eloquent call for urgent but thoughtful action. (Jan.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the edition. From As program director for the Nature Conservancy, Adams is in the perfect position to write about the contemporary conservation movement. His essay collection is grounded in a firm historical perspective and incorporates a recent shift in thinking. In the past, he writes, "science has played only a minor role in the conservation drama," and that had to change. By speaking with individuals on the front lines of the -decision-making process to preserve and expand wild places, Adams provides an in-depth look into what is happening now with conservation biology, ecosystem preservation, and biogeography. In his discussions on the Everglades, the Arizona desert, and Yellowstone, Adams stresses science over politics and never strays into diatribes or rants. Adams quotes Wallace Stegner, Aldo Leopold, and John Wesley Powell throughout, but it is the work of individuals such as rancher Warner Glenn that he champions. "Glenn embodies the land on which he was raised," writes Adams, and it is that level of involvement that is critical to the future of all of our wild places.
