#ForewordFriday Heatstroke

In anticipation of the Society for Conservation Biology, North American Congress for Conservation Biology meeting that starts this weekend, get familiar with Anthony Barnosky and his important book, Heatstroke. "[Barnosky]...argues brilliantly that conservation biology can no longer focus on saving [ecosystems]. The reason is simple: Thanks to global warming, the ecosystem we work to save today will have a different climate tomorrow."  —Washington Post "Read this book, and reflect on your own views about humanity's place in nature. Then plant a tree, walk to work, and go and call your political representative."  —Nature We've got the eBook file on sale for $9.99 (discount taken at checkout).
