...provides a practical and integrated approach to carrying out research on the conservation of exploited species of any kind. (Institute of Zoology)
'...it fills an important gap and assembles a great deal of valuable information of interest to readers of Sustainable. One of the merits of the book is its clarity.' Sustainable, December 2007
The relentless exploitation and unsustainable use of wildlife, whether for food, medicine or other uses, is a key concern for conservationists worldwide. Indeed, wildlife conservation and sustainable use have recently become centrepieces in conservation and development research. Assessment, interpretation and ultimate action in a scientific study of exploited species must consider numerous factors: from the biology, habitat requirements and population dynamics of the species in question to the relationships that people have with their environment and the species within it. Any long-term management plan must ensure that people and wildlife can coexist - otherwise it is doomed to failure. Conservation and Sustainable Use provides a practical and integrated approach to carrying out research on the conservation of exploited species. It is relevant to both tropical and temperate biomes and is applicable to all exploited species, including mammals, fish and plants. It describes both the practical (field) and theoretical (modelling) techniques for obtaining and interpreting information, integrating biological, social, economic and institutional analyses.It also demonstrates how to translate information into effective action through appropriate interventions, from legislation to changing people's attitudes. This is the first time that all these issues have been covered together in a single, practically-orientated volume. This book will be essential reading for graduate level students and researchers in conservation biology, human ecology, sociology and resource economics. It will also provide an important reference for anyone who is interested in carrying out a scientifically-based conservation programme for an exploited species, including field biologists, wildlife managers and practitioners in the fields of conservation and international development.

This book is a little more specific that i was expecting at first. It is about the conservation and sustainable use of species that are under direct threat from humans such as hunting. its not so much about how to protect species not under direct threat. Its still very informative and useful and full of techniques for field research.

Prompt delivery of an excellent textbook which covers many complex concepts and principles in conservation science. Very clear explanations with case studies to illustrate the point. Valuable resource for anyone studying conservation and these sellers were offering the textbook at a very reasonable price.
