About this book

This book provides a multi-disciplinary coverage of the broad fields of species, community and landscape conservation. The wide panel of contributors, including botanists, zoologists, ecologists, architects, lawyers and journalists, consider a range of topics in vegetation and biodiversity assessment, planning and management of conservation zones and protected areas, together with historical and social/legal issues of the environment and nature conservation. The case-studies reported emphasize the importance of traditonal phytosociologal, floristic and faunistic research, in combination with cutting edge molecular biology and genetics. The book celebrates the life's work of Professor Franco Pedrotti, who has done so much to propagate a holistic view of conservation.
