About the Authors
  • This volume focuses on solutions to complex ecological problems with the objective of developing a new science for sustainability. Improving the health of people and animals, and improving the health, integrity or sustainability of ecosystems are laudable and important objectives. Can we do both? No ecosystems are untouched by human activity, and it appears that the world's ecosystems are reaching the limits of their ability to adapt to human impacts. The book draws on fields as diverse as epidemiology and participatory action research, philosophy and environmental sciences to examine this vital issue.

    • An engrossing account of a new science for sustainability
    • Provides a multidisciplinary approach for solutions to complex problems
    • Aimed at practitioners concerned to improve human, animal and ecosystem health

    Reviews & endorsements

    " is timely that David Waltner-Toews has written a concise book that effectively sets out "a practical approach" to guide veterinarians and others who head into this new territory. It is rich in conceptual content. The author is superbly prepared for this undertaking...Veterinarians with special interests in wildlife disease, toxicology, epidemiology, population medicine, and public policy will find this book useful in placing their expertise in the wider context of ecosystem health. More generally, educators and leaders of the profesion should find the book helpful in making the profession more responsive to societal needs." - N. Ole Nielsen DVM, PhD, University of Guelph
