Editorial Reviews

From The Foreword By E. O. Wilson
As a people and nation, we consistently invest in Yellowstone science, as the wildlife populations wax and wane and as the climate changes, migrations are allowed or prevented, wolves are eliminated and restored, and invasive species of animals and plants press in. Translation of this science into twenty-?rst century stewardship is the intent of the present volume. The information is timeless and valuable beyond measure.
