About this book

This book is the first to review the quantitative tools used in conservation biology. The topics covered include population viability analysis, population dynamics, meta-population models, estimating risks and timing of extinction, quasi-extinction, recovery dynamics, land use, population genetics, and the genetics of bottleneck populations. Aimed at the practising biologist and land use manager, it will also be invaluable to students in conservation biology, ecology, and natural resources.

Contents

From the contents: Detecting extinctions in sighting data.- Extinctions in sighting data: power and an application to Western Australian Acacia species.- Identifying the ecological correlates of extinction prone species using maximum likelihood regression: a case study of New Zealand birds.- Quantitative methods for modeling species habitat: comparative performance and an application to Australian plants.- Risk assessment of a proposed introduction of Pacific salmon in the Delaware River Basin.- Likelihood of introducing nonindigenous organisms with agricultural commodities: probabilistic estimation.- Best abundance estimates and best management: why they are not the same.- Whaling models for cetacean conservation.- Bayesian belief networks: assessing land use impacts on bull trout.- Using matrix models to focus research and management efforts in conservation.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "Population decline and extinction of many species is a worldwide phenomenon. Because quantitative methods are either lacking or not applied population declines are often poorly understood ! . The present book aims to contribute to close this gap by introducing several different quantitative methods that are useful to conservationists. ! The book has been written for graduate students and working conservation biologists. ! The authors succeeded ! in presenting the different methods in an understandable and simple way. ! I would recommend the book." (Michael Schaub, Basic and Applied Ecology, Issue 5, 2004)
