In nature, location is everything. Ecology exists because many factors-such as species, soil, water, and history-interact across the landscape to create varying patterns of natural communities. This book shows how GIS and geography provide a framework for ecology and conservation efforts. Described is how new technological tools for that kind of analysis, chief among them GIS, are being used to revolutionize the work of nonprofit organizations and other groups committed to conservation. Also discussed isenvironmental justice, the rights of indigenous peoples, and sustainable development.
