Many species of plants and animals all over the world are faced with the threat of extinction. This anthology probes the issue with selections that cover the causes of species endangerment, the impact of the Endangered Species Act, and the complex and difficult task of saving threatened species.
"This thoughtful, lucidly written work presents an evenhanded discussion of five major issues. The best organized introduction for the student needing report or debate material. The abundantly footnoted text quotes many primary sources and draws upon scientific examples to illuminate the questions. Informative...black-and-white photographs accompany the text. The appended list of organizations and the generally current list of books for further reading are both annotated."
