Political and natural boundaries generally do not coincide, leading to difficult policy and management dilemmas—and even conflicts—especially when international borders are involved. This pioneering book offers a comprehensive look at the challenges of conserving the interconnected ecosystems and migratory linkages shared by Mexico and the United States. The authors propose path-breaking approaches to overcome these challenges, including the use of the ecosystem service framework. The lessons that emerge from this book are applicable globally.

This is a solid work that will endure for decades. . . . A benchmark study.
