Book Description :

This new set is another entry in the growing collection of Beacham's guides to endangered, threatened, and extinct species. Previous volumes include the one-volume World Wildlife Fund Guide to Extinct Species of Modern Times RBB S 1 97 and the four-volume Official World Wildlife Fund Guide to Endangered Species of North America (1994). The current set treats 351 species, mammals only, and appears to be derived from the same database of information presented in Beacham's International Threatened, Endangered and Extinct Species on CD-ROM RBB My 15 97, which covers 1,400 species. Data are provided on mammalian species listed as threatened or endangered by the USFWS (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). A third volume will cover all other foreign species listed by this agency. (A master list of protected species is available at FWS' Web site at risk by the IUCN (The World Conservation Union) or by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). There is an entry for the previously endangered eastern gray kangaroo to show the process by which one species has been successfully recovered. The authors use the above-mentioned organizations as the authorities for their work. For example, in the introductory section on 'Gorillas and Orangutans, ' they have chosen to follow the USFWS' designation for endangered species and the IUCN's placement of apes in the Pongidae family rather than Hominidae. Each set of species accounts includes a general introductory section giving the popular name, the family and subfamily scientific names, and a general description of the characteristics of the species. These sections often include information on threats and are especially revealing, telling us, for example, that mountain gorillas are killed occasionally by carnivores but their main predator is man. The specific accounts follow, in typical Beacham format, with scientific and familiar names, a color photo, and an accompanying list giving status, date listed, family, description, habitat, food, reproduction, threats, and range. Short paragraphs expand on these themes and add information on conservation and recovery efforts. Several pages of references, a glossary, and a useful country index complete volume two. Sponsored by the IUCN, Encyclopedia of Endangered Species RBB F 1 95 is handy because it includes mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, and plants in one volume. However, the black-and-white photographs do not compare to those in the Beacham volumes or in the ten volumes of Marshall Cavendish's Endangered Wildlife of the World RBB My 1 93. The latter is best suited for young readers, whereas Beacham guides are suitable for any age level in any library collecting material on endangered species. The photographs on the Beacham CD-ROM are the ones used in the print volumes but are much less clear. The CD-ROM enables users to move around in the database via hyperlinks. However, at this time, the books are easier to use because of the confusing structure of the user interface on the disk. ; 1,085p-

Book Description :

Endangered Species, 2nd Edition, presents information on endangered and threatened mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, mollusks, insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and plants. Its 240 entries -- including 40 new species added to the 2nd Edition -- were chosen to give a glimpse of the broad range of species currently facing endangerment. While well-publicized examples such as the American bison, northern spotted owl, and gray wolf are examined, so, too, are less conspicuous -- yet no less threatened -- species such as the Australian ant, Cape vulture, and Peebles Navajo cactus. The entries are spread across three volumes and are divided into sections by classes. Within each class, species are arranged alphabetically by common name. Color locator maps outlining the range of a particular species are included in each entry to help users find unfamiliar countries or locations. More than 200 color photographs provide a more concrete vision of the species. Sidebar boxes containing interesting and related information are also included in some entries.

Book Description :

"As Secretary of the Interior, implementing the Endangered Species Act was one of my most important, and challenging, responsibilities. All who deal with this complex and critical law need a clear and comprehensive guide to its provisions, interpretation, and implementation. With chapters written by some of the foremost practitioners in the field, the new edition of Endangered Species Act: Law, Policy, and Perspectives is an essential reference for conservationists and the regulated community and the attorneys who represent them."---Bruce Babbbitt, former Secretary of the Interior "In January 1973, when i introduced in Congress the bill that would become the Endangered Species Act, I described it as one of the most important pieces of legislation needed if we were to conserve, protect, and propagate our thereatened fish and our wildlife resources, which were diminishing too rapidly. I am proud to have introduced the original bill and even prouder that, in the ensuing years, the Endangered Species Act has saved hundreds of species from extinction. We have learned much along the way about the conservation of endangered species, the needs of the regulated community, and how the Endangered Species Act can successfully reconcile the two. It is important that we have a comprehensive understanding of the problems and potential of this landmark law."---John D. Dingell, U.S. House of Representatives, Michigan "Possibly the single most effective legislative effort of modern times to ensure that our children and grandchildren can enjoy the blessings of nature that were passed on to our generation was the enactment of the landmark Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 1973. The ESA has allowed the United States to make great advances in protecting the web of life that enables the intricate coexistence of man, plant, and animal. In my role as Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, I recognize the role of the Endangered Species Act in helping us to fulfill our stewardship responsibilities while balancing local concerns and economic needs. Understanding how the ESA works is essential to its continued success."---Nick J. Rahall, II, U.S. House of Representatives, West Virginia "After a lifetime of studying, writing about, and being amazed by the diversity of life, I remain convinced that failing to do everything we can to protect it is the folly future generations are least likely to forgive us. The Endangered Species Act is one of the most far-sighted and important laws ever adopted. A thorough understanding of how the law works, the major policy issues surrounding it, and how to resolve those issues will ensure the law's continued success in protecting biodiversity. Endangered Species Act: Law, Policy, and Perspectives provides readers with the needed insight to this critically important law."---Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus at Harvard University and Honorary Curator in Entomology at the Museum of Comparative Zoology
