A text for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates, this book is a thorough review of the latest thinking in conservation biology, and is the first major text in the discipline which does not originate from the US. Including contributions from William Adams, Susan Harrison, Stuart Pimm, Ian Newton, Oliver Rackham and Daniel Simberloff, the chapters cover extinction, introductions, exploitation, site selection, habitat and species management, conservation economics, conservation education, policies and politics, and conservation and development. Covering a range of taxonomic groups, including aquatic and terrestrial plants and animals, and focusing on action throughout, this is a major contribution to the field.
