“A monumental capstone to the US National Park Service centennial with a very timely and unique historical perspective. Written by an outstanding lineup of authors who are leaders in their fields, Science, Conservation, and National Parks offers a refreshing holistic treatment of the linkages and mutual dependencies between parks and science. This book will be a valuable contribution to the field of protected area conservation, one that positions the National Park Service and other agencies and institutions managing protected areas to become more proficient at using science in decision making. At the same time, it offers greater insights into the important role parks play in science. Conservation scholars, conservation practitioners, and land managers all over the world will be interested in its content and lessons. Compelling.”
