Precious heritage : the status of biodiversity in the United States( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A vast land of contrasts, the United States stretches from above the Arctic Circle to below the tropic of Cancer, and spans nearly a third of the globe, from eastern Maine to the tip of the Aleutian chain. Within this area exists an immense variety of ecosystems, supporting a wealth of plant and animal life. Precious Heritage provides a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated overview of that biological diversity. Sponsored by The Nature Conservancy and the Association for Biodiversity Information, this book draws together for the first time more than 25 years of information from U.S. natural heritage programs, a national network of state biodiversity inventories

Two eagles : the natural world of the United States-Mexico borderlands = Dos aguilas by Tupper Ansel Blake( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evident beside the natural beauties of the borderlands are the effects of environmental degradation. Grasslands once covered much of the region, but now, after more than a century of cattle grazing and the introduction of nonnative grasses, little pristine grassland remains. Steamboats once navigated the San Pedro River to deliver goods to Tombstone, Arizona, but today most of the San Pedro has no year-round surface flow, and many species of fish and amphibians have disappeared. In Tamaulipas, the future of farmers and ranchers is in jeopardy also as the slow-growing mesquite forests are depleted for charcoal production. For many, charcoal represents the only source of income for hundreds of miles

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In celebration of its fiftieth anniversary, The Nature Conservancy asked a dozen distinguished contemporary photographers to spend some time at a handful of the Last Great Places. They were given full rein to capture the essence of a place - its geography, its people, its heart. The result is In Response to Place, a lavishly illustrated book and a traveling exhibition of the same name." "This volume features original, unpublished images by Annie Leibovitz, Richard Misrach, Sally Mann, William Wegman, Mary Ellen Mark, Lynn Davis, Lee Friedlander, Hope Sandrow, William Christenberry, Fazal Sheikh, Karen Halverson and Terry Evans." "Images for In Response to Place were selected by Andy Grundberg, a widely respected photography critic and curator. Grundberg's essay explores the motivations behind and the significance of the photographers' works. The artists capture their experiences in the Last Great Places in both images and words. Commentary by The Nature Conservancy sketches the ecological concerns at each site. The book opens with a foreword by acclaimed writer and naturalist Terry Tempest Williams."--Jacket

The international community has committed itself to achieve, by 2010, a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss at the global, regional, and national levels.
