About this book

Differences in individual behaviour may determine the success or failure of a conservation initiative, yet they are rarely considered when strategies and policies are developed. This book explores how knowledge of animal behaviour may help increase the effectiveness of conservation programs. Brings together conservation biologists, wildlife managers, and academics from around the world to examine the importance of general principles, the role played by specific characteristics of different species, and the importance of considering the behaviour of individuals and the strategies they adopt to maximize fitness. Looks at the theoretical foundations of a topic, and explores its practical implications. Considers possible future contributions of research in animal behaviour to wildlife conservation.
