About this book

Provides the first review of modern conservation approaches as they relate to mammals. Bringing together both researchers and conservationists, it presents perspectives on issues including the role of mammals within the conservation movement, how priorities should be set and funds allocated within mammalian conservation and which techniques and approaches are likely to be most successful in conserving mammals in the future. Beyond the focus on mammals, issues of broader conservation relevance are highlighted, including the integration of species- and biodiversity-approaches to conservation, the role of `flagship species' and the need to develop holistic conservation models that relate to the broader context of society and government.

Media reviews

'! of particular interest to those who are involved in funding, evaluating and developing conservation programmes, both at the species and ecosystem levels. It will also provide a good reference to the ongoing debate of the role of flagship species in biodiversity conservation.' Jonathan D. Ballou, Animal Behaviour '! balanced, clearly expressed and well argued. Ideally it will find a place in research laboratories internationally.' The Australian '! an excellently-structured and highly readable book that deserves wide readership by all those involved in conservation science and also by those considering an entry into this vital field.' Adrian Barnett, Primate Eye
