Book Description :

This book is an authoritative work on the ecology of some of America’s most iconic large mammals in a natural environment - and of the interplay between climate, landscape, and animals in the interior of the world’s first and most famous national park. Central Yellowstone includes the range of one of the largest migratory populations of bison in North America as well as a unique elk herd that remains in the park year round. These populations live in a varied landscape with seasonal and often extreme patterns of climate and food abundance. The reintroduction of wolves into the park a decade ago resulted in scientific and public controversy about the effect of large predators on their prey, a debate closely examined in the book. Introductory chapters describe the geography, geology and vegetation of the ecosystem. The elk and bison are then introduced and their population ecology described both pre- and post– wolf introduction, enabling valuable insights into the demographic and behavioral consequences for their ungulate prey. Subsequent chapters describe the wildlife-human interactions and show how scientific research can inform the debate and policy issues surrounding winter recreation in Yellowstone. The book closes with a discussion of how this ecological knowledge can be used to educate the public, both about Yellowstone itself and about science, ecology and the environment in general. Yellowstone National Park exemplifies some of the currently most hotly debated and high-profile ecological, wildlife management, and environmental policy issues and this book will have broad appeal not only to academic ecologists, but also to natural resource students, managers, biologists, policy makers, administrators and the general public. * Unrivalled descriptions of ecological processes in a world famous ecosystem, based on information from 16 years of painstaking field work and collaborations among 66 scientists and technical experts and 15 graduate studies. * Detailed studies of two charismatic North American herbivore species – elk and bison * Description of the restoration of wolves into central Yellowstone and their ecological interactions with their elk and bison prey * Illustrated with numerous evocative colour photographs and stunning maps

Book Description :

Evidence is mounting that top carnivores and other large mammals play a pivotal role in regulating ecosystem health and function, yet those are the species that are most likely to have been eliminated by past human activities. In recent decades, numerous efforts have been undertaken to return some of the species that were previously extirpated on local or regional scales.Large Mammal Restoration brings together for the first time detailed case studies of those efforts, from restoring elk in Appalachia to returning bison herds to the Great Plains to the much-publicized effort to bring back the gray wolf to Yellowstone National Park. Together these case studies offer important lessons and new ways of thinking for wildlife managers and conservation biologists involved with restoration programs. Sections examine: approaches to determining the feasibility of a restoration program critical hands-on aspects of restoring large mammals obtaining public input into the process and gaining community support for programs the potential of some species to return without direct human intervention, and what can be done to facilitate that natural colonization An introductory chapter by Reed F. Noss explores some of the reasons for restoring large mammals, as well as some of the ecological and social complications, and a concluding overview by David S. Maehr discusses the evolutionary importance of large mammal restoration. Contributors include Paul C. Paquet, Barbara Dugelby, Steven H. Fritts, Paul R. Krausman, Larry D. Harris, Johnna Roy, and many others. Large Mammal Restoration brings together in a single volume essential information on the lessons learned from previous efforts, providing an invaluable resource for researchers and students of conservation biology and wildlife management as well as for policymakers, restoration advocates, and others involved with the planning or execution of a restoration program.

Book Description :

The conservation of wildlife in and near Yellowstone, the world's first national park, is complex and often contentious because federal and state management agencies, local residents, visitors, and various stakeholder groups have a wide variety of expectations. P. J. White has spent more than 15 years working as a biologist in Yellowstone, currently as the leader of the Wildlife and Aquatic Resources Branch. In this book, he provides insights into the scientific, social, and political issues influencing the conservation of wildlife in the Yellowstone area. He offers candid assessments regarding the difficulties of conserving and restoring native wildlife in modern society, including bison, grizzly bears, native fish, and wolves. The advice and lessons contained herein will help newer professionals and students of wildlife conservation avoid many pitfalls. The information will also benefit the millions of people that visit the Yellowstone area each year or monitor the condition and management of the natural resources via the Internet or other outreach avenues. About the Author: P. J. White is the Branch Chief of Wildlife and Aquatic Resources at Yellowstone National Park. He received the Director's Award for Natural Resource Management in the National Park Service during 2010. He has collaborated to produce three other books on Yellowstone, including The Ecology of Large Mammals in Central Yellowstone: Sixteen Years of Integrated Field Studies (2009; ISBN-13:978-0-12-374174-5); Yellowstone's Wildlife in Transition (2013; ISBN 978-0-674-07318-0); and Yellowstone Bison-Conserving an American Icon in Modern Society (2015; ISBN 978-0-934948-30-2). P. J. received his doctoral degree in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Wisconsin (1996); master's degree in Wildlife Conservation from the University of Minnesota (1990); and bachelor's degree in Wildlife Science from Cornell University(1980).

Book Description :

Fire Ecology in Rocky Mountain Landscapes brings a century of scientific research to bear on improving the relationship between people and fire. In recent years, some scientists have argued that current patterns of fire are significantly different from historical patterns, and that landscapes should be managed with an eye toward reestablishing past fire regimes. At the policy level, state and federal agencies have focused on fuel reduction and fire suppression as a means of controlling fire. Geographer William L. Baker takes a different view, making the case that the available scientific data show that infrequent episodes of large fires followed by long interludes with few fires led to naturally fluctuating landscapes, and that the best approach is not to try to change or control fire but to learn to live with it. In Fire Ecology in Rocky Mountain Landscapes, Baker reviews functional traits and responses of plants and animals to fire at the landscape sca≤ explains how scientists reconstruct the history of fire in landscapes; elaborates on the particulars of fire under the historical range of variability in the Rockies; and considers the role of Euro-Americans in creating the landscapes and fire situations of today. In the end, the author argues that the most effective action is to rapidly limit and redesign people-nature interfaces to withstand fire, which he believes can be done in ways that are immediately beneficial to both nature and communities.

Book Description :

Additionally, the 1993 federal Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan is critiqued and an alternative plan is proposed. The authors state convincingly that the greatest threat to the survival of the grizzly bear is neither a lack of firm biological knowledge nor a lack of understanding in how to apply this information. Rather, the threat lies with our politico-economic system that demands unsustainable use of our public land and water resources.
