Wildlife Ecology, Conservation and Management
This is much expanded and extensively revised second edition of one of the standard textbooks on wildlife management. It provides a thorough introduction to general ecological principles and examines how they can be applied to wildlife management and conservation.
There are new chapters on understanding ecosystems and the use of computer models in wildlife management, and a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of ecology including the latest theories on population dynamics and conservation. The book reviews practical applications and techniques and assesses how these can be used to formulate realistic objectives within an ecological framework. Examples of real-life management situations from around the world are given, to provide a broad perspective on the international problems of conservation. Finally, there are worked examples on CD enable students to practice calculations explained in the text.
This is a most excellent book ... The authors manage to pull the best out of the lessons that wildlife ecology, conservation biology, and habitat management should have taught us over the past 30 years, and present the results in clear, insightful prose. John Anderson, College of the Atlantic "This book has one very interesting feature: it comes with a CD Rom complete with exercises and an evaluation copy of a mathematical calculating/drawing program called Mathcad... Overall, a comprehensive text, well designed, aimed at the more experienced student/conservationist." Teaching Ecology Group Newsletter "The scope of the book is broad and the subject matter logically presented and well-explained." Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
