This article examines endangered species law as it may affect land use in the United States. The first section describes the legal and biological contexts into which the ESA intruded. Section II outlines the protective mechanisms established by the 1973 version of the Act and their reception by the courts. The third section discusses the corrective amendments to the Act enacted in 1978. The final section applies the law as it has developed and as it is likely to evolve to a series of more or less hypothetical land use conflicts, forecasting multiplication of the disputes between endangered species and human desires.
