From the Publisher
"Blending scientific and legal expertise, the author tries to prove that a devastating ecological crisis is imminent, or even underway already, and that conservation law has yet to catch up with biological science. He asserts that there is more to gain than lose by legally protecting biological hotspots."
Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment
"[P]rovides a sobering lookn at a sobering toic-extinction….Consider our nation's willingness to commit resourcers, peopple, and money in fighting the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction. Isn't the threat of mass extinction in the world's hotspots on the same scale and shouldn't the same or greater resources be brought to bear on a potential solution?Ark of Broken Covenant poses that challenge."
The State of The Natural Resources Literature
"Original, stimulating, and accessible reading for ecologists, conservation biologists, and environmental policy and legal scholars at all levels. Highly recommended. All levels."
"[K]unich's book is an important contribution to this issue of global concern, as it raises the level of the biodiversity debate to a search for practical solutions. The book has a wealth of references and details for the serious reader, but at the same time, it is written in a casual tone . The book is filled with analogies, starting with the title, in which the 'ark' symbolises the biodiversity hotspots which are lifeboat for earth's living things. The hotspots are obviously a key target for protection efforts. However, because these areas are so complex, controversial, and difficult to work in, little has been done to date. This book may contribute to changing that."
