This article offers an early examination of the law and governance of biodiversity (circa 1995) through the lenses of the Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, and Coastal Zone Management. It suggests that true multi-scalar, cooperative federalism will be needed to manage complex ecological resources for biodiversity conservation. A suggested model employing regional biodiversity management approaches is outlined.
