THE RAIN FORESTS OF HOME: PROFILE OF THE NORTH AMERICAN BIOREGION
by Ecotrust/Interrain Pacific; P. Schoonmaker, B. von Hagen and E. Wolf, eds. (1997)
This publication is one result of the conference on the coastal temperate rain forests of North America held at Whistler in 1994. It brings together a diverse array of thinkers--conservationists, community organizers, botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, First Nations, ecologists, and others--to present a multilayered, multidimensional portrait of the coastal temperate rain forest and its people. Joining natural and social science perspectives, the book provides readers with a valuable understanding of the region's natural and human history, along with a vision of its future and strategies for realizing that vision.
