Short Description: 
Cristina Eisenberg on her new book, The Carnivore Way
Guest host Kathleen Stephenson interviews Cristina Eisenberg about her new book, "The Carnivore Way: Coexisting with and Conserving North America's Predators."  In "The Carnivore Way", Cristina Eisenberg argues for the necessity of top predators in large, undisturbed landscapes, and how a continental-long corridor — a "carnivore way" — provides room to roam and connected landscapes that allow them to disperse.

Cristina Eisenberg conducts trophic cascades research focusing on wolves in Rocky Mountain ecosystems. She teaches ecological restoration and public policy in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. She is a Smithsonian Research Associate, a Boone and Crockett Club Professional Member, and an Aldo Leopold scholar. Dr. Eisenberg has authored multiple peer-reviewed scientific and literary journal articles and several book chapters. Her first book, The Wolf’s Tooth: Keystone Predators, Trophic Cascades and Biodiversity, was published in 2010 by Island Press.
