Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0898434238, Paperback)

The rapid degradation of ecosystems is leading to an unprecedented loss of biodiversity and services on which human life and wellbeing depend. Conserving Biodiversity is the report of an Aspen Institute Biodiversity Policy Forum held in April, 2004. It includes "Gardening the Earth," a summary of the group’s conclusions by Forum Co-chairs Bruce Babbitt, former U.S. Secretary of Interior, and José Sarukhán, Professor of Ecology and former President of the National University of Mexico (UNAM). They stress the importance of protecting biodiversity in human-dominated environments in addition to setting aside protected areas. The report also includes nine discussion papers commissioned for the Forum.
