Description

Ecology and Wonder makes several remarkable claims: The greatest cultural achievement in the Western Canadian mountain region is what has been preserved, not what has been developed. Protecting the spine of the Rocky Mountains will preserve crucial ecological functions. Because the process of ecosystem diminishment and species loss has been slowed, an ecological thermostat has been kept alive. This may well be an important defence against future climate change impacts on the Canadian west. Ecology and Wonder is a must-read for those who appreciate Western Canada's breathtaking landscape.
