About this book

Many of the world's leading conservation and population biologists evaluate what has become a key tool in estimating extinction risk and evaluating potential recovery strategies - population viability analysis, or PVA. PVA integrates data on the life history, demography, and genetics of a species with information on environmental variability, using computer models ranging from simple measures of population growth rate to complex spatial simulations, to predict whether a given population will remain viable (not go extinct) under various management options.
`This is the most important book on population viability analysis since the concept first emerged in the early 1980s. It will certainly become a "conservation classic".' Paul R. Ehrlich, Stanford University

Media reviews
[This] is the most important book on population viability analysis since the concept first emerged in the early 1980s. The balanced approach to the use of PVA in this book clarifies its strengths and weaknesses and provides clear direction for how it should be applied for years to come. Population Viability Analysis is a critically important contribution to the development and application of conservation science. It will certainly become a 'conservation classic.' - Paul R. Ehrlich, Stanford University
