About this book

Through a global and interdisciplinary lens, Rewilding discusses, analyses and summarizes the novel conservation approach of rewilding. Rewilding introduces key rewilding definitions and initiatives, highlighting their similarities and differences. It reviews matches and mismatches between the current state of ecological knowledge and the stated aims of rewilding projects, and discusses the role of human action in rewilding initiatives. Collating current scholarship, the book also considers the merits and dangers of rewilding approaches, as well as the economic and socio-political realities of using rewilding as a conservation tool. Its interdisciplinary nature will appeal to a broad range of readers, from primary ecologists and conservation biologists to land managers, policy makers and conservation practitioners in NGOs and government departments. Written for a scientifically literate readership of academics, researchers, students, and managers, the book also acts as a key resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses.

Media reviews

"[...] As rewilding becomes part of a mix of conservation tactics, conservationists will be faced with decisions about when this is the most effective approach to employ. Anyone in the field of conservation is therefore likely to find this book valuable, not least because it asks the question of what conservation should strive to achieve, an essential question in a world undergoing such radical social and environmental changes."
– Rebecca Nesbit, The Niche, September 2019
