About this book

Discussing the array of issues associated with consideration of the cumulative effects of projects and developments on surrounding habitat rather than in isolation, this book outlines methods to address these impacts in wildlife management. Chapters cover definitions and approaches, NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act), quantifying effects both spatially and temporally, monitoring and regulation at home and abroad, economic considerations, and the impact of shortfalls. Each chapter includes illustrative examples including anthropogenic impacts on freshwater fish and cumulative effects on sage-grouse, barrenground caribou, and bighorn sheep.
