Ecosystems - Balancing Science with Management
Edited by Vogt, K., Patel-Weynand, T., Witten, E., Gordon, J., Wargo, J., Vogt, D., Asbjornsen, H., Palmiotto, P. A., Clark, H. J., O'Hara, J. L., Keaton, W. S.
Ecosystem management has gained widespread visibility as an approach to the
management of land to achieve sustainable natural resource use. Despite widespread interest
in this emerging management paradigm, Ecosystems: Balancing Science with Management is
the first book to directly propose approaches for implementing ecosystem management, give
examples of viable tools, and discuss the potential implications of implementing an ecosystem
approach. These ideas are framed in a historical context that examines the disjunction between
ecological theory, environmental legislation and natural resources management.
