About this book

Proceedings of an international conference on Population Dynamics and Management of Vertebrates [Exclusive of Primates and Fish] held at Oakland, California, July 1991. Massive and valuable collection.

The editors succeeded in avhieving a functional organization to an otherwise unwieldy collection of papers. The uniformity of format and typesetting of the papers gives this book a very clean and professional look. In addition, the depth of topics insure that both seminal and more recent references can be found...There are few other books I would consider more thoughtfully - Ecology; It has been said many times that conservation biologists should pay more attention to the resource management crowd and their literature, and I can think of no better introduction thatn a perusal of this volume - Conservation Biology
