Description

In this work ecologists, wildlife biologists, and other conservationists explore the ecological legacy of Aldo Leopold and his contributions to the environmental movement, the philosophy of science, and natural resource management. Personal essays describe the enormous impact he has had on each author, from influencing the daily operations of the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the creation of a land-use ethics guide for Forest Service personnel, to much needed inspiration for continuing on in today's large, complex and often problematic world of science.show more
