A new book that focuses on the changing ecology and management approaches in Yellowstone National Park has been published by Harvard University Press.
“Yellowstone’s Wildlife in Transition” incorporates the expertise of more than 30 contributors. Among them are Montana State University faculty members in two departments — the Department of Ecology and the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences — and several MSU alumni who work for the National Park Service or other federal agencies.
Cindy Goeddel, an MSU undergraduate student and professional photographer, took and donated all the photos in the 368-page book.

“The book has a big MSU footprint,” said MSU ecologist Bob Garrott, one of its three editors.
Garrott is a professor in the MSU Department of Ecology and director of MSU’s Fish and Wildlife Ecology and Management Program. The other two editors work for the National Park Service. P.J. White, a longtime collaborator of Garrott’s, is chief of wildlife and aquatic resources at Yellowstone National Park. Glenn Plumb is chief wildlife biologist in the Biological Resource Management Division of the National Park Service.
Famed naturalist Edward O. Wilson, professor emeritus at Harvard and presenter of an annual award in his name at MSU, wrote the forward.
