Reclaiming the last wild places : a new agenda for biodiversity by Roger L DiSilvestro( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a remedy DiSilvestro proposes an "applied biodiversity" approach which would concentrate efforts on protecting ecosystems rather than individual species or unique geological features. Practically, this would entail a combination of various new approaches outlined in the book, including ecosystem "gap analysis"--An inexpensive, underutilized technique for detecting and filling in the gaps of ecosystems - as well as the construction of wilderness corridors that would allow animals safe passage from one wilderness area to another. At the same time, strict legislative reforms are needed to reverse more than a century of mismanagement." "Combining a concise history of conservation in America - including compelling portraits of such conservationist-heroes as John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Bob Marshall, and others - along with a comprehensive plan to reform outdated conservation practices, Reclaiming the Last Wild Places is essential reading for anyone who believes that the future of our species depends on our learning how to live in harmony with nature."--Jacket

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Similar ecological rays of hope are revealed in areas all over the country and the world. For example, in areas like Nepal, Kenya, and Ecuador, ecotourism can play a crucial role in wildlife and habitat preservation by generating income from tourism instead of from poaching or land clearing. As tourism generates increasing percentages of a nation's income, the importance of preserving the natural area grows. In addition, Rebirth of Nature reminds us that endangered habitats are not just faraway places like African and Central American rainforests, but also natural areas closer to our own lives such as the Great Lakes and the Great Plains of the American West
