Excellent and timely book - a must read! 21 décembre 2014
Par Donna Fleury - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Dr. Cristina Eisenberg is an internationally recognized ecologist, research scientist, writer and speaker who successfully brings together complex multifaceted disciplines of ecology, wildlife biology, biodiversity, and climate change with conservation, policy and management to advance our understanding. Her personal experiences combined with a passionate and clear voice in The Carnivore Way translates complex information and critical data into an easily accessible reader for professionals, students and interested citizens trying to understand this complexity and figure out how to make a difference. The Carnivore Way and her earlier book The Wolf's Tooth should be on everyone's reading list. Excellent book and thanks Cristina for sharing your vision, passion, wisdom and research expertise to help scientists, students and citizens better understand wildlife, landscapes and conservation, and find ways to engage in co-existence and make a difference across the globe.

How nature works! 17 décembre 2014
Par Stephen Hall - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
How do carnivores help the species they prey on? Why is killing predators counterproductive, and what are the roles of predators in Nature? Aside from hunting and trapping, what are the other pressures civilization places on predators, and how can we alleviate them? Why is it important that our wildlife be able to cross interstates, skirt towns and cities, and move from habitat to habitat? What role does fire play in enabling or denigrating habitat for wildlife and plant communities?

Many of us grow up loving nature in general, and wildlife in particular, without really understanding the connections between fauna and flora, and the natural processes in nature. Many folks think of nature as some aesthetic bonus, another attraction to distract us from our busy lives, and lose sight of the fact that we are a part of nature. The public glorifies charismatic creatures like lions, elephants, whales, etc., while having no clue about the myriad, unheralded plants and creatures that are key to a healthy, functioning ecosystem. We destroy nature at our peril, even as we deny that we can have any meaningful effect.

My wife and I run a wildlife rehab and refuge center, and are undeniably nature groupies, who read every layman’s guide on how nature works. We have read Cristina Eisenberg’s “The Wolf’s Tooth”, which masterfully describes the dim background rustling in nature, how predators you’ve never heard of interact with prey species, whose rising and falling fortunes have dramatic and lasting effects on their ecosystems. “The Carnivore Way” looks at the American and Canadian Rockies, and their wildlife habitats, such as Yellowstone, Glacier, Banff and Jasper National Parks, and most importantly, at efforts to set up wildlife corridors which enable the flow of genes from one habitat to another.

Cristina combines the scientist’s knowledge and background with the ability to write in an entertaining and easily accessible manner. Her message is critical for our future as a species, just as we hold the reins in determining what will happen to our environment, and the future of our children and grandchildren. A warning: if you read these books, you’ll want to take your kids and grand kids to those parks, but now you’ll have the background to get past those “Oh wow!... a grizzly” moments, and understand and appreciate what you are looking at.. Great reads!

Important topic 19 décembre 2014
Par L Chesnut - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a very enjoyable book about a topic that is extremely interesting to me. I've read a lot of books on wolf ecology and biology but the tension between those individuals residing in rural areas and wildlife conservation efforts is an important piece of the puzzle that we must understand with more clarity.

In addition to discussion about select large carnivores (wolves, grizzly bears, lynx, jaguars, wolverines and cougars), their habitat and how to coexist with them, Dr. Eisenberg defines and explains important conservation tenets such as corridor ecology and trophic cascades - terms that I've read about before but never completely understood. But perhaps the most important chapter is the last, entitled "Earth Household". Within this chapter. Dr. Eisenberg talks about the evolution of our conservation ethics, including the important "North American Model of Wildlife Conservation", which serves as the basis for many of our current management efforts. She explains how bias exists within this model and what we can do to change the way that communities, states and even our nation manage wildlife.

Finally, her chapter notes and a glossary of terms are a rich source of information that I will use to expand my knowledge on these and other topics. My thanks to Dr. Eisenberg for a very readable and informative book.

Landscape conservation and charismatic carnivores 29 décembre 2014
Par passagehawk - Publié sur
Format: Relié
After introducing us to carnivore ecology and the need they have for a large home ranges and multi-state dispersal, Cristina Eisenberg dedicates a chapter to each of six species of large N.A. carnivores (Grizzly, Wolf, Wolverine, Lynx, Cougar, Jaguar). She does a great job of balancing the current understanding of science and published literature with stories of walking, researching, and living in their habitats.

For those of us who loved The Wolf's Tooth and were waiting for more, The Carnivore Way spans the continent from North to South and allows us to enter into the world of corridors and carnivores. For students, naturalists, and all those interested in landscape level conservation, this is a must read.

Gained Compelling Knowledge 17 décembre 2014
Par glacierbetty - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Using the tools of science, the art of writing and her first hand experience in the extraordinary world of the Rocky Mountains, Dr. Eisenberg, explores the questions that arise from how to manage human and large carnivores living together. What these animals need for survival and why it is a benefit to humans that they do survive.

She does so in a way that the this lay person can better understand the interconnectedness of all who is habit this land. Dr. Eisenberg's work gives me sound footing and compelling knowledge on this subject. I am grateful for this book not only for my own understanding but she helped me elevate my discussions away from fear based rhetoric. There is language and understanding for folks with no personal experience of wilderness to the biologists in the field.
