(p.1) Introduction
This Land Is Your Land

Michael J. Lannoo

University of Chicago Press

This overview outlines the tasks performed by field biologists, which include discovering what’s out there (natural history), describing how it fits together (ecology), determining how to save the parts we value (wildlife biology), and figuring out how to save everything (conservation biology). Further, when elements cannot be saved, field biologists help bring back species and their ecosystems (restoration biology).

Keywords:   Natural History, Ecology, Conservation Biology, Wildlife Biology, Restoration Biology, Paul Dayton, Norman Maclean, John Steinbeck, Edward Flanders Robb Ricketts
