About this book

Language: English

Wildlife management is a very interesting subject and very few books are available on this topic for the Indian market. The books available are dealing with specific areas of wildlife management as per the expertise of the author and it is often found that these books do not cover the expanse of knowledge and science of wildlife management.

While writing this book, the vastness of the topic with which wildlife management deals with in the current scenario has been duly kept in mind. The author sees the complexity of the problems, the enormity of the threats to wildlife, the intricacies of the techniques of management and with the advancement in the techniques, the possibilities of applications in this field. All these and many things put together made for a good reason to write a book from which everyone would be able to benefit from a single work. This book is a comprehensive work covering all aspects of wildlife management touching from topics like bio-diversity to wildlife ecology, from census to statistical concepts, from eco-tourism to legislation and policies and many more. Hence it is put into two volumes.

In the first part, biodiversity conservation, wildlife values, wildlife and its management, habitat management, population management, wild life, ecology, forest fires, biological attributes and habitat requirement of important animal species, capture, restraint and biotelemetry, tracking of animals based on signs & symptoms, management of wildlife habitat and conservation projects, organizations involved in wild life conservation and related forest laws are dealt with.

Lastly, a chapter on the future path for wildlife conservation has been included.

The book has been written in a manner that is simple and easy to understand where a balance between theory and practical inputs has been struck. While, there is no dearth of scientific base of management covered, the application part of the science involved has also been duly given importance. The author is confident that this book will be of help to all those who are in any way related to wiidlife and its management, especially to wildlife managers and students of wildlife management.
