In 1991, Island Press published Turning the Tide, a unique and accessible examination of the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem. The book took an in-depth look at the Bay's vital signs to gauge the overall health of its entire ecosystem and to assess what had been done and what remained to be done to clean up the Bay. Much has changed since that book came out, and while success is evident in many areas, the bottom line on the last decade is sobering. How can we ensure that the next decade does not end like the last, with numerous battles won but little progress made?This new edition of Turning the Tide makes a vital contribution to the effort to restore the Bay. It addresses new developments of the past decade and examines the factors that will have the most significant effects on the health of the Bay in the coming years. With new case studies and significantly updated maps, charts, and graphs, the book builds on the analytical power of ten years of experience to offer a new perspective, along with clear, science-based recommendations for the future.For all those who want to know not only how much must be done to save the Bay but what they can do and how they can make a difference, Turning the Tide is an essential source of information.Horton, Tom is the author of 'Turning the Tide Saving the Chesapeake Bay', published 2003 under ISBN 9781559635493 and ISBN 1559635495.
