5.0 out of 5 stars Handbook for a new era of conservation!, May 30, 2000
This review is from: Watershed Restoration: Principles and Practices (Hardcover)
As America comes to realize that many conservation policies of the past have done more harm than good, this book is a trail guide to the right path to walk. It addresses not only the need to work with whole ecosystems and watersheds, but to also include the human inhabitants of the area and their social ecology into the process. It points out that every environmental conflict has arisen from situations where the balance was tipped too far towards the people or too far towards the environment and it provides essential concepts to try to regain the balance. It also provides many case studies of the restoration of watersheds, to act as models in our own endeavors. I highly reccomend this book- it expands your thinking and gives you hints and ideas for ways to successfully walk the fine line between ecology and sociology.
