Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handbook is a comprehensive guide to the federal Endangered Species Act, the primary U.S. law aimed at protecting species of animals and plants from human threats to their survival. The Act protects not only threatened and endangered animals and plants, but their habitats as well, from direct and indirect threats such as hunting and development. Enacted in 1973 without opposition, the Act has over the past 27 years become a focal point for controversy, as efforts to protect species have clashed with traditional views of economic progress. Despite the often heated debate, the Act enters the 21st century essentially unchanged.

This handbook, intended for lawyers, government agency employees, students, community activists, businesspeople, and anyone else who needs to understand the Endangered Species Act, guides the reader through the Act's provisions, including the procedures for listing species and designating their critical habitats, the requirements the Act places on federal agencies, and the scope of protections afforded to listed species. It contains a discussion of the modern extinction crisis and a brief history of endangered species protection in the United States. The handbook also explains how the Act and its implementing regulations have been interpreted by courts over the years. It provides valuable tips for citizens who wish to become involved in application and enforcement of the Act. The handbook includes the text of the Act, as well as a bibliography of related legislative materials, case law, and legal scholarship.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive guide to the US Endangered Species Act (1973). In passing the Act, Congress resolved to put an end to decades of neglect that had resulted in the extinction of such species as the passenger pigeon and the Carolina parakeet, and the near extinction of the bison. This book guides the reader through the Act's most important provisions, including: the species listing procedure; the directions for protection of listed species; critical habitat designations; the prohibition of takes; efforts at international cooperation; requirements for federal agencies; procedure for bringing suit; relevant case history; and interpretive controversies. This second edition updates the material, adds a new section on Habitat Conservation Plans, expands the section on international endangered species protections and examines the possibility of a congressional reauthorization of the Act. The book concludes with the text of the act and a bibliography of related legislative materials, case law, and legal scholarship.
