This is the first book of its kind in 20 years on red squirrel management and conservation in the UK and across Europe. Red Squirrels: Ecology, Conservation & Management in Europe ties together subjects covering habitat, ecology, disease, conservation and population management of the red squirrel, as well as its complex interaction with the North American grey squirrel. Edited by Craig Shuttleworth, Peter Lurz, and Matthew Hayward and written by world renowned experts, this review of current research and practice is accessible to the non-scientist as well as to those studying ecology and conservation.
In a foreword written by wildlife expert and regular BBC Springwatch contributor, Iolo Williams, the importance of research in understanding the complex relationship between red and grey squirrels is highlighted. Red Squirrels: Ecology, Conservation & Management in Europe is essential reading for those with an interest in red squirrel conservation and ecology and the authors hope to have contributed to a wider debate.
