This handbook is a comprehensive guide to the federal Endangered Species Act, the primary U.S. law aimed at protecting species of animals and plants from human threats to their survival. The Act protects not only threatened and endangered animals and plants, but their habitats as well, from direct and indirect threats such as hunting and development. Enacted in 1973 without opposition, the Act has over the past 27 years become a focal point for controversy, as efforts to protect species have clashed with traditional views of economic progress. Despite the often heated debate, the Act enters the 21st century essentially unchanged. This handbook, intended for lawyers, government agency employees, students, community activists, businesspeople, and anyone else who needs to understand the Endangered Species Act, guides the reader through the Act's provisions, including the procedures for listing species and designating their critical habitats, the requirements the Act places on federal agencies, and the scope of protections afforded to listed species. It contains a discussion of the modern extinction crisis and a brief history of endangered species protection in the United States. The handbook also explains how the Act and its implementing regulations have been interpreted by courts over the years. It provides valuable tips for citizens who wish to become involved in application and enforcement of the Act. The handbook includes the text of the Act, as well as a bibliography of related legislative materials, case law, and legal scholarship.

This new set is another entry in the growing collection of Beacham's guides to endangered, threatened, and extinct species. Previous volumes include the one-volume World Wildlife Fund Guide to Extinct Species of Modern Times RBB S 1 97 and the four-volume Official World Wildlife Fund Guide to Endangered Species of North America (1994). The current set treats 351 species, mammals only, and appears to be derived from the same database of information presented in Beacham's International Threatened, Endangered and Extinct Species on CD-ROM RBB My 15 97, which covers 1,400 species. Data are provided on mammalian species listed as threatened or endangered by the USFWS (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). A third volume will cover all other foreign species listed by this agency. (A master list of protected species is available at FWS' Web site at risk by the IUCN (The World Conservation Union) or by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). There is an entry for the previously endangered eastern gray kangaroo to show the process by which one species has been successfully recovered. The authors use the above-mentioned organizations as the authorities for their work. For example, in the introductory section on 'Gorillas and Orangutans, ' they have chosen to follow the USFWS' designation for endangered species and the IUCN's placement of apes in the Pongidae family rather than Hominidae. Each set of species accounts includes a general introductory section giving the popular name, the family and subfamily scientific names, and a general description of the characteristics of the species. These sections often include information on threats and are especially revealing, telling us, for example, that mountain gorillas are killed occasionally by carnivores but their main predator is man. The specific accounts follow, in typical Beacham format, with scientific and familiar names, a color photo, and an accompanying list giving status, date listed, family, description, habitat, food, reproduction, threats, and range. Short paragraphs expand on these themes and add information on conservation and recovery efforts. Several pages of references, a glossary, and a useful country index complete volume two. Sponsored by the IUCN, Encyclopedia of Endangered Species RBB F 1 95 is handy because it includes mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, and plants in one volume. However, the black-and-white photographs do not compare to those in the Beacham volumes or in the ten volumes of Marshall Cavendish's Endangered Wildlife of the World RBB My 1 93. The latter is best suited for young readers, whereas Beacham guides are suitable for any age level in any library collecting material on endangered species. The photographs on the Beacham CD-ROM are the ones used in the print volumes but are much less clear. The CD-ROM enables users to move around in the database via hyperlinks. However, at this time, the books are easier to use because of the confusing structure of the user interface on the disk. ; 1,085p-

Endangered Species, 2nd Edition, presents information on endangered and threatened mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, mollusks, insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and plants. Its 240 entries -- including 40 new species added to the 2nd Edition -- were chosen to give a glimpse of the broad range of species currently facing endangerment. While well-publicized examples such as the American bison, northern spotted owl, and gray wolf are examined, so, too, are less conspicuous -- yet no less threatened -- species such as the Australian ant, Cape vulture, and Peebles Navajo cactus. The entries are spread across three volumes and are divided into sections by classes. Within each class, species are arranged alphabetically by common name. Color locator maps outlining the range of a particular species are included in each entry to help users find unfamiliar countries or locations. More than 200 color photographs provide a more concrete vision of the species. Sidebar boxes containing interesting and related information are also included in some entries.
