Integrating ecology with the natural and social sciences, F Stuart Chapin III creates a framework from which to apply theory to inform scientific practice. Providing a pragmatic strategy for tangibly saving the environment, this is not a book about what should be done; it is a book about what has been done and what can be done.

    F Stuart Chapin, Mark W Oswood, Keith Van Cleve, Leslie A Viereck, David L Verbyla

    The boreal forest is the northern-most woodland biome, whose natural history is rooted in the influence of low temperature and high-latitude. Alaska's boreal forest is now warming as rapidly as the rest of Earth, providing an unprecedented look at...

Recensioner i media

Lauren B. Allsopp, Quarterly Review of Biology It is within our reach to be effective stewards of our world, and the powerful Grassroots Stewardship aids that goal. It should be required reading in every discussion or class on sustainability.

Stephen R. Carpenter, BioScience The book is written in a conversational style that flows smoothly. The book should appeal to anyone who wants to understand the interdisciplinary literature of ecosystem stewardship, at a level suitable for general readers but with plenty of scientific substance in the notes and citations at the end.

Nancy Lord, Anchorage Daily News, Anchorage Daily News Why can't Chapin's vision, his four-tiered strategy, be realized? Everything he suggests...is doable. "Grassroots Stewardship" will likely be adopted for use in classes on stewardship and sustainability, but its readability and applicability to the lives of ordinary citizens should put it on reading lists more broadly.

Stephen Carpenter, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Former President of the Ecological Society of America This is a wonderful book. As I read it, I felt that I was on a long walk in the woods with Terry, learning his perspective on ecosystem stewardship.

Valerie Eviner, University of California, Davis, and Former Vice President for Science at the Ecological Society of America A must-read for those looking to shape positive changes for our environment and society through science, community building, and/or land management.

Carl Folke, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and Stockholm University "This critically important book deals with society's most profound challenge: How humans can become active stewards of our future on a planet that we also have the capacity to ruin. The book demonstrates humanity's capacity to mobilize and transform towards sustainable futures. Terry Chapin is a true pioneer, innovative thinker, and source of inspiration for so many.

Harold Mooney, Stanford University Terry Chapin brings a critical new dimension to sustainability science bridging between scientists and other citizens.

Kathleen Dean Moore, Oregon State University Chapin's argument is a muscular braiding of clear science, sensible suggestions, and compelling stories from his life in Alaskan villages, far-flung field stations, and scientific commissions. Authoritative and informal, pragmatic and thought-provoking, this book-of the flood of new books about the planet's precarious fate-is one everybody should read.

Marten Scheffer, Wageningen University and author of Critical Transitions in Nature and Society Chapin's scientific impact has been enormous. This book reveals another dimension of why he has been so inspiring: modest, wise, loving and determined to make the world a better place. Reading it will leave you encouraged.

Brian Walker, Former Director of Division of Wildlife and Ecology, CSIRO, and recipient of the 2018 Blue Planet Prize It's a personal jo...
