Legacy: Conserving New York State’s Biodiversity
DURING THIS TIME, THE BRI OFFICE CANNOT DISTRIBUTE HARD COPIES OF THE LEGACY BOOK. PLEASE CONTACT THE NEW YORK STATE MUSEUM PUBLICATIONS OFFICE FOR ASSISTANCE.
Description: Legacy: Conserving New York State’s Biodiversity is a new, 100-page, full-color book offering a remarkable glimpse into the vast array of life and beauty in New York State. Included are the birds we see at our backyard feeders, giant salamanders that quietly eat crayfish, “bottomless” lakes, alpine tundra, forests that need fire to survive, and much, much more.
This book is a publication of the New York State Biodiversity Project, an ambitious collaborative effort by the American Museum of Natural History, New York State Biodiversity Research Institute, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, New York Natural Heritage Program, and The Nature Conservancy. The group’s aim is to improve the understanding of the state’s biodiversity and to identify both challenges and solutions to protect it.
