About this book

The definitive textbook for students of wildlife management, now updated to cover the latest techniques, tools, and topics.

Wildlife Management and Conservation presents a clear overview of the management and conservation of animals, their habitats, and how people influence both. The relationship among these three components of wildlife management is explained in chapters written by leading experts and is designed to prepare students for careers in which they will be charged with maintaining healthy animal populations. To be successful wildlife professionals, they will need to find ways to restore depleted populations, reduce overabundant, introduced, or pest species, and manage relationships among various human stakeholders. This book gives them the basic knowledge necessary to accomplish these goals.

This second edition, which is updated throughout, features several new and expanded topics, including communication in the wildlife profession, fire science, Indigenous models of management and conservation, plant–animal interactions, quantitative analysis of wildlife populations, and a detailed glossary. The book also covers:
- Human dimensions of wildlife management
- Animal behaviour
- Predator–prey relationships
- Structured decision making
- Issues of scale in wildlife management
- Wildlife health
- Historical context of wildlife management and conservation
- Hunting and trapping
- Nongame species
- Nutrition ecology
- Water management
- Climate change
- Conservation planning

The most widely used foundational text in the field, this is the perfect resource not only for students but also for early career professionals and those in related fields who need to understand the core tenets and tools of wildlife conservation and management.

Media reviews

"Wildlife Management & Conservation does a great job introducing readers to the wildlife management triad [...] and provides an excellent overview of the wildlife profession for students [...] Although it is an introductory wildlife management text, the information supplied in the book is detailed enough to be of value to professionals."
Journal of Wildlife Management

"This volume is a nice and easy-to-read collection of chapters covering important topics in wildlife management. Including topics such as structure decision-making and climate change makes this book particularly timely. This volume meets its objective to serve as a textbook for undergraduate courses and, as a reference, many will find it useful and interesting in both capacities."
