Washington DC: Island Press, 2006. Octavo, paperback,
Presents an overview of the history of transboundary conservation efforts and an introduction to various issues surrounding the subject. Examining the International Sonoran Desert Alliance (ISDA) and the Yellowstone to Yukon Initiative (Y2Y), this book helps readers understand the benefits and challenges of landscape-scale protection. Conservationists have long been aware that political boundaries rarely coincide with natural boundaries. From the establishment of early "peace parks" to the designation of continental migratory pathways, a wide range of transborder mechanisms to protect biodiversity have been established by conservationists in both the public and private sectors. Conservation across borders presents a broad overview of the history of transboundary conservation efforts and an accessible introduction to current issues surrounding the subject. Also available in hardcover [stock id 24847].
