About this book

Many modern ecological problems such as rain forest destruction, decreasing marine harvests, and fire suppression are directly or indirectly anthropogenic. Zooarchaeology and Conservation Biology presents an argument that conservation biology and wildlife management cannot afford to ignore zooarchaeological research – the identification and analysis of faunal remains recovered from archaeological deposits. The editors contend that we can learn important lessons by studying long-term human and nonhuman influences on biota and ecosystems. From this perspective, we can begin to understand biogeographic dynamics and behavioural patterns that are invisible to researchers who study living organisms over just a small span of years.

The focus of Zooarchaeology and Conservation Biology is on the North American faunal record. Contributors identify a specific management or conservation issue, describe and analyse relevant zooarchaeological data, and offer recommendations or at least establish a baseline for possible resolution. Zooarchaeology and Conservation Biology brings together both case studies and research about past ecosystems and examines how such knowledge can be of current utility and relevance.
