Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 069102507X, Paperback)

"[Bryan Norton] seeks to offer directions, to stimulate readers to ask the right questions, and to clarify some of the fuzzy thinking that pervades sections of the conservation movement. I found this a helpful and well-structured book written with a clarity of style and logic not always found in philosophic treatises. . . . Why Preserve Natural Variety? arrives at an opportune time. Biodiversity is a current catch word and Norton provides a good analysis of both the arguments supporting biodiversity and the criticisms by skeptics. . . ."--David R. Given, BioScience "Norton's book is a fine companion piece to his anthology The Preservation of Species (Princeton University Press, 1986). . . . Rewarding reading for anyone who has ever reflected on why, how, or if natural habitats should be preserved."-- Library Journal "A valuable and unique contribution both to environmental ethics and public policy analysis of the preservation of species question. Norton provides a critical overview of the range of thought on the issue, presents a new and comprehensive rationale for preservation of both species and ecosystems, and addresses policy issues." --Choice
