In this launch of the Galapagos series, this book provides a broad "framing" assessment of the current status of social and ecological systems in the Galapagos Islands, and the feedback that explicitly links people to the environment. It also highlights the challenges to conservation imposed by tourism in the Galapagos Islands and the attendant migration of people from mainland Ecuador to service the burgeoning tourism industry. Further, there is an emphasize on the status of the terrestrial and marine environments that form the very foundation of the deep attraction to the Islands by tourists, residents, scholars, and conservationists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book, edited by Walsh (Univ. of North Carolina) and Mena (Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador), both associated with the Galipagos Science Center, focuses on studies of the social and ecological sustainability of the islands. ... Although the book's purpose is foundational for future volumes in the series, it can easily stand alone as a valuable and needed overview of the complex human-environmental interactions in the Galipagos. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (R. L. Smith, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), August, 2013)
