If an endangered species is quickly disappearing, what can natural resource managers do about it? A book exploring the answers and options for decision-making in the natural resource world was recently edited by Sarah J. Converse, an associate professor with the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and the School of Aquatic and Fishery Scientists, and other scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey.

In the book, titled “Structured Decision Making: Case Studies in Natural Resource Management,” the editors look at how these natural resource managers can learn to discuss and move forward in the face of these issues. The book describes how a decision-making approach can help. It was published in May by Johns Hopkins University Press.
