About this book

Presents the three major areas of population viability assessment: count-based, demographic, and multi-site, or metapopulation, models. The authors first present general concepts and approaches to viability assessment and then, in sections addressing each of the three fields of PVA, they guide the reader from considerations for collection and analysis of data to model construction, analysis, and interpretation. Detailed case studies use data from real endangered species.
