State of the Wild 2006: A Global Portrait of Wildlife, Wildlands, and Oceans by Wildlife Conservation Society

Sharon Guynup, Editor
Island Press

Sharon Guynup, a Hoboken, N.J., freelance, says the Wildlife Conservation Society hired her to create, sell, and launch a State of the Wild book series. Why preach only to the choir? Thus she chose hunting and the wildlife trade as the cover topic for this first volume, which focuses about one-third of content on issues such as the trade in animals for the traditional Asian medicine trade, bycatch, and diseases that could come with a bushmeat dinner (or your new, exotic pet).
