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
