Carl Steinitz has developed a GIS-based simulation modelling strategy that considers the demographic, economic, physical and environmental processes of an area and projects the consequences to that area of various land-use planning and management decisions. The results of such projections, and the approach itself, are known as alternative futures. This volume presents a detailed case study of one alternative futures project - an analysis of development and conservation options for the Upper San Pedro River Basin in Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. The book gives a comprehensive overview of how the study was conducted along with descriptions and analysis of the alternative futures that resulted.

A rather detailed, clearly written, interest encouraging, sympathy and curiosity driven book - a delight to read. Sometimes I was a little exasperated with length and the detail, such as that of the part about pines and oaks near the end, and also because he made so many references to so many species of trees that I am nearly totally ignorant about (I know what a maple looks like, but not their varieties; I know a birch, white pine (but not the varieties of pines and spruces), and that's about it). Nonetheless, it encouraged me to clear away my ignorance and plant the seeds of knowledge.
