How can environmental problems be solved when they cross boundaries and involve diverse people? What kind of leadership and institutions will bring success? From experience in the greater Yellowstone region, Susan G. Clark looks at leadership and policy in managing natural resources. She assesses accomplishments toward sustainability over the past forty years.
Focusing on The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee, a federal group of heads of national parks, national forests, and national wildlife refuges, Clark identifies fundamental leadership tasks needed, explains what changes in skill will be required, and makes many practical recommendations for every leader, citizen, and group involved with large-scale conservation anywhere worldwide.
“This is not a small case study: there are two national parks, six national forests, three wildlife refuges, multiple agencies involved, and scores of difficult issues. The book will be the definitive work on the Yellowstone case.”—William Ascher, Claremont-McKenna University

“There is a wealth of experience in this book about how to manage resources across jurisdictional boundaries at the large ecosystem level. From that experience Clark extracts key lessons for leadership and management.”—Murray B. Rutherford, School of Resource Management, Simon Fraser University
