Cristina Eisenberg Discusses Her Book, The Wolf's Tooth: Keystone Predators, Trophic Cascades and Biodiversity August 1-31, 2011

Welcome Cristina to America's WILD READ community. We all look forward to your first post here on August 1 and we all will converse with you through the comment function of the discussion blog.

WILDREADers, let me tell you a little about Cristina and next week she will surely tell you more.

Cristina Eilsenberg is a conservation biologist, science writer, Boone & Crockett Club Conservation Fellow, and Aldo Leopold Scholar. She is completing her doctorate in forestry and wildlife at the Oregon State University in the College of Forestry. Her doctoral research has focused on wolves and trophic cascades in Glacier National Park, Montana, and Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta. Cristina works as the research director on the High Lonesome Ranch in Colorado, a mixed-use ranch managed for conservation. She will be conducting postdoctoral research on trophic cascades involving fire, wolves, elk, and aspen. The author of The Wolf’s Tooth: Keystone Predators, Trophic Cascades, and Biodiversity, published by Island Press in 2010, she is currently at work on her second book, which is about large carnivore conservation in the American West. She comes from a ranching background and lives with her family in a cabin in northwestern Montana in a place where wolves and grizzly bears outnumber humans.

Dr. James Estes will also participate as he comments on Christina's posts and perhaps post his own short essay regarding the book and its topic. See information about Estes' Island Press book with John Terborgh entitled Trophic Cascades: Predators, Prey, and the Changing Dynamic of Nature and the Science (AAAS) article "Trophic Downgrading of Planet Earth" (Science, 333, p. 301-306).
