Wildlife Law: Cases and Materials, Second Edition
Animals are living entities, organized into shifting, complex ecological systems, so biology plays a critical role in their story. Moral sentiments and ethical values have expanded to attend to the plight of particular animals, to species, and to the healthy functioning of communities, so ethical concerns appear as a key issue. Topics covered include the rule of capture; wildlife and private property; liability for wildlife; state proprietary and sovereign powers; the roles of state and national governments; Indian treaty rights; international wildlife law; state game laws; federal protection for species and wildlife habitat; biodiversity; endangered species; and climate change.
