Books: Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning for the Boreal Forest (by Herb Hammond)

NationTalk – Experts from across Canada gathered at the University of Toronto last night to discuss new approaches to protecting ecosystems in Ontario’s Northern Boreal Forest especially in light of dangerous climate change. The panel, moderated by Environmental Commissioner Gord Miller, challenged the audience to think about how Ontario could plan for Boreal ecosystems while at the same time respecting Aboriginal peoples and building new opportunities for economic prosperity. “Planning in the Boreal Forest has to start with big landscapes. The bigger the better,” said Herb Hammond, award winning author and forest ecologist. “The more you know about forests, the more you realize you don’t know,” Hammond cautioned. And that is why we have to be precautionary in our approach, he said. The event was part of a nation-wide launch of Hammond’s newest book called Maintaining Whole Systems on Earth’s Crown: Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning for the Boreal Forest.
