HalfEarth” by Edmond O. Wilson offers a scientist’s road map for finding ecological balance. His proposal? Set aside half of the planet as wilderness preserves, free from human encroachment. Kirkus Reviews called this an “informed pleas for mankind to act as stewards instead of owners.” “The Serengeti Rules” by Sean Carrol offers a micro compliment to Wilson’s macro view by showing how a specific ecosystem, Africa’s Serengeti Plain, works. “Rightful Heritage” by David Brinkley (“Wilderness Warrior”) celebrates Franklin Roosevelt’s legacy as a conservationist. He set aside shorelines and wilderness areas and championed re-forestation and soil conservation. An “exhaustive” but “brightly written” companion to “Wilderness Warrior.”
