Timothy J. Farnham is assistant professor of environmental studies, University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He lives in Las Vegas.
“In examining an idea that is now driving conservation worldwide,
Tim Farnham gets the story right in a way that no one else has. His
book is richly detailed, yet catches the large themes
beautifully.”—Elliott Norse, president, Marine Conservation Biology
"This book contributes something unique to the literature of what might be called the history and philosophy of conservation. It treats the term and concept of biodiversity itself as its subject and provides an analytic and historical study of it."—J. Baird Callicott, University of North Texas
