About this book

Conservation Biology brings together theory, applied research, basic research, and hundreds of real-world examples and stories from dozens of disciplines to teach students how to become practicing conservation biologists who protect and manage Earth's biodiversity. A major theme throughout Conservation Biology is the active role that researchers, local communities, the general public, conservation organizations, and governments can play in protecting biodiversity, even while maintaining a high quality of life for humankind.
