Contents Notes
The book brings together a diverse array of thinkers--conservationists, community organizers, botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, Native Americans, ecologists, and others--to present a multilayered, multidimensional portrait of the coastal temperate rain forest and its people. Joining natural and social science perspectives, the book provides readers with a valuable understanding of the region's natural and human history, along with a vision of its future and strategies for realising that vision. It offers for the first time a unified description of the characteristics, history, culture, economy, and ecology of the coastal temperate rain forest. It is essential reading for anyone who lives in or cares about the region.
