Biodiversity and the Law Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Biodiversity and the Law is a timely and provocative volume that combines historical perspective and cutting-edge legal analysis in an authoritative and broad discussion of biodiversity and the law. Leading legal and policy experts consider a variety of options for the worldwide protection of biodiversity and present a succinct but comprehensive overview of the legal mechanisms available. They examine how conservation advocates can better utilize existing law, and consider what new law is needed.

Among the topics considered are:

  • scientific and policy foundations of biodiveristy protection
  • domestic efforts to establish an effective endangered species protection regime
  • international biodiversity protection
  • biodiversity as a genuinely public entity
  • the future of biodiversity law
Contributors include Mollie Beattie, Don Waller, Jason Patlis, Lindell Marsh, Todd Olson, Peter Jenkins, Suzanne Iudicello, John Pendergrass, Dinah Bear, Walter Kuhlmann, Rodger Schlickeisen, David Downes, and others.
