Who wouldn't want to see an untouched prairie, a rare salamander, an endangered butterfly? You'll find these and more than 2,500 other endangered species, habitats, and ecosystems described in this unique guide to little-known protected sites across the country. This work, the companion to the author's award-winning Toxic Waste Sites: An Encyclopedia of Endangered America (see page 43), includes: -- Overview of endangered ecosystems. -- The first state-by-state roster of threatened sites, many of which haven't been listed by the states themselves. -- A discussion of the controversial question of what is endangered and what isn't. If a forest supports a rare bird species, should the entire forest be protected? -- Appendixes that give the particulars of important state agencies and offer lists of endangered and threatened species. -- A glossary, a comprehensive bibliography, and a thorough subject index further enhance the volume's usefulness.
