  Atlas of Yellowstone Themes  
 
Variations in Space and Time
The Yellowstone environment is constantly changing over time scales ranging from the geologic to the almost instantaneous and over spatial scales ranging from the microscopic to the regional. The variation theme explores change across scales to explain the rich tapestry of the Yellowstone landscape.
 
Yellowstone is Connected
Yellowstone does not exist in isolation. Atlas storylines demonstrate how Yellowstone is situated in a broader environmental context, and that what occurs in other places affects Yellowstone, just as Yellowstone influences places far removed from the region's core.
 

Human-Nature Interactions
The human imprint theme demonstrates the interplay of human and natural processes in the Yellowstone region. In particular, the atlas examines human impacts on nature, our attempts to redress those impacts, and the profound influence of the natural environment on people in the Yellowstone region.

 

The Importance of Yellowstone
The portraits of the history and environment of Yellowstone provide readers with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the importance of Yellowstone for research, for interpretation and education, and for inspiring conservation and preservation efforts locally and throughout the world.
