About this book

Highlights the importance of science in nature conservation.

"This volume is valuable because we get to know what drives a wildlife biologist in India despite enormous challenges - such as the unresponsive, and sometimes antagonistic, bureaucracy and lack of institutional support for ecological sciences. What comes across clearly is the critical importance of supporting scientific research in our conservation areas, which would need changes in our forest bureaucracy and scientific institutions. The argument gets strength since it's advanced by a biologist who has spent three decades in forests studying endangered species. This lucidly written book is recommended for conservationists of all hues." - Ghazala Shahabuddin
