Shogren, Jason F. and John Tschirhart (eds.)

Protecting Endangered Species in the United States: Biological Needs, Political Realities, Economic Choices. 2008. 21 line drawings. 2 maps. 31 tabs. 440 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
This collection of original essays by economists, biologists and political scientists has a common theme: that protecting species at risk while safeguarding social order is a policy challenge that entangles biology, politics, and economics. Nearly 1200 species are listed as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973; only twelve have been removed from the list. Attempts at species recovery on public and private property lead the authors to examine the political realities that define the debate: who should pay the costs and receive the benefits, and how interest group behaviour affects the nature of endangered species protection.
