Thinking Like a Mountain
An Ecological Perspective on Earth
by R. Edward Grumbine
Pub Date 30 Sep 2012
In Thinking Like a Mountain, we have excerpted a clear and inviting introduction to the science of conservation biology from Ed Grumbine's previous book, Ghost Bears, augmented by a new introduction and photographs. Grumbine offers a succinct and evocative description of why we should all care about biodiversity, protected lands, connectivity, and extinction rates, and the advantages to be gained by attempting to 'think like a mountain', as so eloquently phrased by Aldo Leopold.
