This casebook draws liberally upon the subject's rich history in law and culture, with biology and ethics playing key roles throughout. Animals are living entities, organized into shifting, complex ecological systems, so biology plays a critical role in the story. Moral sentiments and ethical values have expanded to attend to the plight of particular animals, to species, and to the healthy functioning of communities, so ethical concerns appear as a key issue. Topics covered include:The Rule of CaptureWildlife and private propertyLiability for wildlifeState proprietary and sovereign powersThe roles of state and national governmentsIndian treaty rightsInternational wildlife lawState game lawsFederal protection for species and wildlife habitatBiodiversityEndangered speciesClimate Change

This law school casebook presents the law and policy of natural resource management in a user-friendly and engaging manner. The book covers a wide range of natural resourcesâe"from forests and wildlife to oceans and riversâe"with problem exercises and case studies for students to sharpen their understanding of the issues. The book begins with an exploration of the economic, scientific, political and ethical considerations that drive natural resource policy as well as consideration of the natural resource management challenges presented by common pool resources, scientific uncertainty, mismatched scale, market failures and institutional adequacy. The book then explores these themes and explicates the basic legal regimes for a range of resourcesâe"wildlife, fisheries, whaling, water, protected lands, range, mining, and forests. The book also considers natural resource law and management on both public lands and private property, as well as in international settings.

A single-resource volume of information on the most current and effective techniques of wildlife modeling, Models for Planning Wildlife Conservation in Large Landscapes is appropriate for students and researchers alike. The unique blend of conceptual, methodological, and application chapters discusses research, applications and concepts of modeling and presents new ideas and strategies for wildlife habitat models used in conservation planning. The book makes important contributions to wildlife conservation of animals in several ways: (1) it highlights historical and contemporary advancements in the development of wildlife habitat models and their implementation in conservation planning; (2) it provides practical advice for the ecologist conducting such studies; and (3) it supplies directions for future research including new strategies for successful studies. Intended to provide a recipe for successful development of wildlife habitat models and their implementation in conservation planning, the book could be used in studying wildlife habitat models, conservation planning, and management techniques. Additionally it may be a supplemental text in courses dealing with quantitative assessment of wildlife populations. Additionally, the length of the book would be ideal for graduate student seminar course. Using wildlife habitat models in conservation planning is of considerable interest to wildlife biologists. With ever tightening budgets for wildlife research and planning activities, there is a growing need to use computer methods. Use of simulation models represents the single best alternative. However, it is imperative that these techniques be described in a single source. Moreover, biologists should be made aware of alternative modeling techniques. It is also important that practical guidance be provided to biologists along with a demonstration of utility of these procedures. Currently there is little guidance in the wildlife or natural resource planning literature on how best to incorporate wildlife planning activities, particularly community-based approaches. Now is the perfect time for a synthestic publication that clearly outlines the concepts and available methods, and illustrates them. Only single resource book of information not only on various wildlife modeling techniques, but also with practical guidance on the demonstrated utility of each based on real-world conditions. Provides concepts, methods and applications for wildlife ecologists and others within a GIS context. Written by a team of subject-area experts

This casebook takes a very broad view of environmental law, encompassing the regulation of private and public land use and protection of wildlife as well as pollution control and remediation. It provides sufficient breadth for any introductory environmental or natural resources law course. It also strikes a balance by focusing in detail on those portions of the statutes covered that raise particularly interesting or important conceptual issues. Throughout, it highlights perpetual controversies such as the nature of human relationships to nature and the appropriate extent of individual control over natural resource use. The Fifth Edition includes problems that help students develop and test their facility with the materials in the text and the concepts underlying those materials. The new edition will also have new chapters on international environmental law issues and on enforcement issues.
