Facts seldom move people; stories often do. Science has taught us a tremendous amount about the complexity, diversity, and fragility of the natural world.

Conservation biology and climatology are teaching us what are the thresholds (for habitat loss, biodiversity depletion, atmospheric carbon concentrations, and more) we dare not cross, lest we irreparably damage the biosphere (and we are near to crossing – or have already crossed – some of those thresholds).

For better or worse, stories and experiences will do more to move people than will the teachings of conservation biology and the forecasts of climatologists, crucial (and dire!) though these lessons are.

So, on this Eco-Fiction plate, we’ll offer excerpts from or reviews of or links to stories that might inspire readers to more eco-centric views and stronger actions for the natural world. We hope thereby to inspire a growing genre of books, articles, movies, and music that makes other life-forms equal partners in the evolutionary dance. Stories can be true, of course. The point here is, we need to inspire as much as we inform.
