Coordinating the Overlapping Regulation of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management
What is the ideal division of power among states and the federal government when it comes to protecting biodiversity and managing wildlife and ecosystems? There may not be a single right answer to this question, but it is worth giving some thought, as the current system developed somewhat disjointedly and by chance. This chapter will review that dual development in Part I. It will then take a present-day snapshot in Part II, which discusses the various cooperative aspects of our existing approach. In Part Ill, we consider the potential for a more precise model of cooperative federalism than the somewhat haphazard model that organically developed and exists today. Finally, Part IV will look toward the changing climate of the future in order to spot the aspects of our present system that are incompatible with that future.
