About this book

Since its original publication in 1960, "The Wildlife Techniques Manual" has remained the cornerstone text for the professional wildlife biologist. Now fully revised and updated, this seventh edition promises to be the most comprehensive resource on wildlife biology, conservation, and management for years to come.

Superbly edited by Nova J. Silvy, the thirty-seven authoritative chapters included in this work provide a full synthesis of methods used in the field and laboratory. Chapter authors, all leading wildlife professionals, explain and critique traditional and new methodologies and offer thorough discussions of a wide range of relevant topics, including:

- experimental design
- wildlife health and disease
- capture techniques
- population estimation
- telemetry
- vegetation analysis
- conservation genetics
- wildlife damage management
- urban wildlife management
- habitat conservation planning

A standard text in a variety of courses, "The Techniques Manual", as it is commonly called, covers every aspect of modern wildlife management and provides practical information for applying the hundreds of methods described in its pages. To effectively incorporate the explosion of new information in the wildlife profession, this latest edition is logically organized into a two-volume set: Volume 1 is devoted to research techniques and Volume 2 focuses on management methodologies.

"The Wildlife Techniques Manual" is a resource that professionals and students in wildlife biology, conservation, and management simply cannot do without.
