"The book's historic approach to environmental management brings new ideas about how to evaluate the sustainability of forestry and agriculture, how to measure biodiversity across time and space, the necessity for history in assessing resilience, and much more. Knowledge of long-term ecological impacts offers important new tools for durable conservation."—Carole Crumley, Uppsala University, Sweden
"This is an excellent series of studies demonstrating the relevance of archaeology and historical ecology for achieving a better understanding of the modern world.
