Wildlife reintroductions are increasingly being employed throughout the world as part of species recovery programmes and habitat restoration or management initiatives. This book, based on a conference supported by the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group, provides an overview of the theory and practice of wildlife reintroductions in Australia and New Zealand. Chapters deal with: genetic, demographic, behavioural and ecological aspects of the reintroduction process; the importance of hypothesis testing in reintroduction projects; use of computer modelling; and regional overviews of programme successes and failures to date. Although the book focuses on the Australasian experience, the information presented will be of value to anyone working in animal population biology, wildlife conservation or threatened species management.
