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

"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 "This volume features original, unpublished images by Annie Leibovitz, Richard Misrach, Sally Mann, William Wegman, Mary Ellen Mark, Lynn Davis, Lee Friedlander, Hope Sandrow, William Christenberry,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
