The conflict between `progress' and conservation is not likely to end anytime soon. In Zaire, poachers are systematically killing the last of the white rhinos. In Uganda, unprecendented numbers of gorillas are being shot daily. Even in the US hundreds of dead manatees have washed up on the shores of southwest Florida, and nobody knows why. This book analyzes our existing wildlife problems and examines bold new solutions to solving them. Among the main issues which are explored: wildlife laws; the definition of wildlife; genetic diversity; biodiversity; extinctions; and hunting and harvesting. Throughout classical scientific methodology helps put these issues are put into focus. Useful for students. This second edition has been re-organized to add focus on `The Evil Quartet' - the four principal causes of extinction - and new chapters on `A History of Wildlife in the U.S.' and `Can Humans Manage Wildlife?'
