Aldo Leopold on Forestry and Conservation: Toward a Durable Scale of Values
Revisit the past and rediscover the beauty and insight of Aldo Leopold’s writings. Leopold continues to be one of the most enduring and important names in forestry and conservation. This volume collects 46 of Leopold’s seminal papers, letters, presentations, and other writings published in the Journal of Forestry and other outlets. With new introductions to each important entry prepared by forest ecologist Jed Meunier (a great-grandson of Leopold) and Leopold scholar Curt Meine, this work belongs in every forester’s library. A bibliography provides suggestions for further reading for those interested in doing an even deeper exploration of Leopold’s rich legacy of writings on forestry and conservation.
"There could not be a more important time to review the writings of Aldo Leopold. They provide the underpinning for ecosystem-based approaches to management of our forests and rangelands. Leopold also models for us—as we can see in this collection of his writings—a lifetime of reviewing and revising his fundamental beliefs in the face of increased knowledge."
-Jerry F. Franklin, Professor of Forest Ecosystems, University of Washington.
