Savory, a former wildlife biologist and farmer, describes why land and environments deteriorate under human management and outlines a holistic approach to their management that involves properly managed livestock as part of the solution to land restoration, along with a focus on quality of life and the future resource base; ecosystem processes and management tools; a focus on actions and decision making; understanding of the wider context of money, energy, sustainability, and other aspects; management guidelines like cropping, burning, and population management; procedures and processes involving financial planning, land planning, planned grazing, policy development, and research; and a feedback loop involving planning, monitoring, controlling, and replanning. He discusses each element, as well as the role of decision makers, the physical resources, and money. Previously published as Holistic Management: A New Framework for Decision Making, this edition has reorganized chapters and new color photos.
