Michael E. Soulé
Michael Soule is professor Emeritus of Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz where he served as Chair of the Department from 1989 to 2096. He was born, raised, and educated in California. After spending much of his youth in the canyons, deserts, and shores of San Diego and Baja California, teaching natural history to children at the Natural History Museum, and graduating from San Diego State, he drove his Hilman Minx to Palo Alto to study population biology with Paul Ehrlich, focusing on the evolution and variation lizards on islands in the Gulf of California.
This book is a select collection of seminal writings by Michael Soulé over a thirty-year time-span from 1980 through the present day. Previously published in books and leading journals, these carefully selected pieces show the progression of his intellectual thinking on topics such as genetics, ecology, evolutionary biology, and extinctions, and how the history and substance of the field of conservation biology evolved over time.
