Who should read this book?
Policy makers in regional, state and federal governments, as well as scientists and the interested lay public. More Food. At farm scale, it is economic viability; while at landscape scale, habitat connectivity and ecological processes dominate.
And at regional scale, markets, government policy, social welfare and the offsite environmental conse- quences of land use all need to be considered. But the challenge does not stop there as trade-offs extend ultimately to the global scale. For example, the consequences of increased demand for low input organic produce in the developed world may lead to intensification in the developing world. As Bawa and co-authors argue, designing incentive and regulatory regimes in the face of these social and ecological interactions requires no less than new knowledge systems and new institutions.
On governance, Bawa and co-authors put a case for decentralisation to bring decision makers closer to the scales at which the impacts of markets and policy are most keenly felt.

A recent example of landscape-scale restoration in the Sahel that was partly triggered by the failure of central governance, provides a graphic demonstration of the influence of politics and the devolution of power on the state of the environment Sendzimir et al. It is nearly 50 years since an influential essay in Science traced the roots of our ecological crisis to the Christian idea of dominion White More encouraging is the evidence in this volume that the marriage between agriculture and ecology that Jackson and Piper called for 25 years ago is producing offspring.
Those involved in teaching or research in environmental management who are interested in the intersection of food, water, carbon and biodiversity will find stimulating material in this volume.
