Scott Abella (Life Sciences) just published a book, Conserving America's National Parks. The book coincides with the 100-year centennial of the National Park Service in 2016. The 200-page book provides an unprecedented view of the challenges and threats facing the 408 units of the national park system. It also provides inspiring conservation success stories that have reversed those threats and their bearing on the future of the national park system. While the book is grounded in the scientific literature with more than 400 literature citations and 247 photos, maps, and graphs, ultimately the book's goal is to share conservation stories unfolding in America's national parks.
