> Aquarium Photo Essay Illustrates Our Fascination with Underwater Wildlife 
> New York, NY, August 5, 2003 - Across the country, researchers studying the 
> effects of sprawl on birds are concluding that if you can't beat it -- plan 
> it. As a result, they are designing landscapes that help, not hurt, native 
> species. 
> The September edition of Audubon - www.audubon.org <http://www.audubon.org> - 
> features a report that details the way that landscapes and structures are 
> being designed to allow for a mutually beneficial relationship between the 
> ever approaching urban sprawl and the birds whose habitat is altered because 
> of it.  Living On the Edges, by T. Edward Nickens, highlights the findings of 
> these researchers on the cutting edge of the movement towards more 
> environmentally sound building practices.  With photographs by Mitch Epstein.
> Land of the Giants - Alaska's Tongass National Forest is big in every way -- 
> from its huge trees to its bears to its 16.8 million acres.  This picturesque 
> forest is also home to 800-year-old trees and an array of wildlife not seen 
> in the lower 48 for a century.  It is these facts make the logging industry's 
> plan to level thousands of acres of the forest even more inconceivable.  In 
> this gripping piece, we are shown a magnificent landscape that is in serious 
> danger of being paved over and through by the U.S Forest Service.  By Ted 
> Kerasote, with photographs by Michio Hoshino, Robert Glenn Ketchum and Art 
> Wolfe. 
> Spawning Hope - Once an environmental and economic mainstay of the Pacific 
> Northwest, salmon are now so scarce that their status is provoking fights 
> across the region. But along Washington's quiet Dungeoness River, one time 
> local foes, in an all-too-rare atmosphere of common sense and mutual respect, 
> have crafted a solution that everyone can live with -- they are teaming up to 
> bring the fish back.  By Susan McGrath, with photographs by Brian Smale, and 
> salmon photography by Susan Middleton and David Liittschwager.
> Fire In the Sky - In April 2002, a long period with little fire came to a 
> dramatic end at the Appleton-Whittel Research Ranch in southeastern Arizona.  
> In less than an hour, flames had reduced the nearly 8,000 acres of grassland 
> to smoldering stubble and ash.  Still, this historic blaze - centuries 
> overdue - may have been the salvation of a unique and little-known ecosystem 
> in the highlands of southeastern Arizona.  By Keith Kloor, with photographs 
> by Michael Lundgren.
> This issue's photo essay features photographs from Aquarium, the new book by 
> renowned photographers Len Jenshel and Diane Cook. The book explores both the 
> splendors of the sea and our fascination with exhibiting them for everyone to 
> appreciate.
