Treating such issues as animal sex, species politics, environmental justice, lesbian space and "gay" ghettos, AIDS literatures, and queer nationalities, this lively collection asks important questions at the intersections of sexuality and environmental studies. Contributors from a wide range of disciplines present a focused engagement with the critical, philosophical, and political dimensions of sex and nature. These discussions are particularly relevant to current debates in many disciplines, including environmental studies, queer theory, critical race theory, philosophy, literary criticism, and politics. As a whole, Queer Ecologies stands as a powerful corrective to views that equate "natural" with "straight" while "queer" is held to be against nature.

Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands is Professor of Environmental Studies and Canada Research Chair in Sustainability and Culture at York University. She is author of The Good-Natured Feminist: Ecofeminism and the Quest for Democracy.

Bruce Erickson is a post-doctoral fellow in Environmental History at Nipissing University.
