Conservation of species has been a central focus of the modern environmental
movement. Yet species conservation has enjoyed mixed success, as is evidenced
by the embattled Endangered Species Act and other similar national and international prescriptions. Papers in this section illuminate common problems faced by
species, including the inability of conservation organizations to take into account
diverse human perspectives toward threatened and endangered species, and the
lack of adequate decision-making processes. A new conceptualization of species
conservation is required that moves beyond the strictly technical and biological
approaches used in many past projects.
The first of the three papers in this section is presented in its entirety, along
with an appendix showing the visual aids used in the oral presentation of
paper to the class. The remaining two papers are presented in one-page
abstract format.
