Keeping Faith with Nature: Ecosystems, Democracy, and America’s Public Lands (2003), by Keiter, examines the historical, scientific, political, legal, and institutional developments that are changing management priorities and policies—developments that compel us to view the public lands as an integrated ecological entity and a key biodiversity stronghold.

Conserving Forest Biodiversity: A Comprehensive Multiscaled Approach (2002), by Lindenmayer and Franklin, argues that the conservation of forest biodiversity requires a comprehensive and multiscaled approach that includes both reserve and nonreserve areas.

Applying Landscape Ecology in Biological Conservation (2002), edited by Gutzwiller, brings together insights from leaders in landscape ecology and conservation biology, and explains how our knowledge about landscape ecology can help us understand, manage and maintain biodiversity.

Large Mammal Restoration: Ecological and Sociological Challenges in the 21st Century (2001), edited by Maehr et al, brings together for the first time detailed case studies of those efforts, from restoring elk in Appalachia to returning bison herds to the Great Plains to the much- publicized effort to bring back the gray wolf to Yellowstone National Park.
