Natural Resource Regulation in California

For anyone seeking an understanding of the complexities of state and federal wetlands and endangered species permitting in California. This book is a resource for lawyers, students, teachers, planners, biologists, resource managers, local government officials, consultants, and members of the public It provides a useful guide that offers both a broad perspective and detailed information on the agencies, laws, regulations, and policies that govern the permitting process.

Finally, a one-stop guide to the complex world of natural resource regulations in California! Morrison and Birkey have written the most comprehensive book on this important subject to date. Although written from a legal perspective, it is very accessible to all. Morrison and Birkey’s book should be on the desk of all practitioners who work in California—consultants, government regulators, government infrastructure agency staff, engaged stakeholders, and environmental attorneys.
I will recommend it to all of my staff and colleagues.”

DAVID ZIPPIN, Vice President and Practice Leader,
Habitat Conservation Planning and Implementation, ICF

“Written by two of the state’s top legal practitioners, Natural Resource Regulation in California is a remarkably useful guide through the complexities of the federal and state laws that protect biological resources in California. I know of no other volume that so comprehensively—and clearly—addresses the legal principles and procedural steps that project applicants must follow in order to obtain the biological permits they need for their projects. This information is useful, though, not just to developers and other permittees, but also to the agency staff who regulate such parties and to environmental advocates and other members of the public concerned with protecting California’s extraordinary biological heritage.”

With California’s water management teetering on the edge of crisis, this timely book is critical for everyone working on and learning about the state’s challenges in an age of growing population, unsustainable water demand, and increasing climate change impacts.” - Mark Gold, Associate Vice Chancellor of Environment and Sustainability, UCLA
