Format: Hardcover
I borrowed this book from the library at my university to help me study for my Ecology finals and particularly a module "The Management and Conservation of Biological Resources". I was amazed at how accessible this book is and yet it treats all topics with depth and gives useful further reading. There are many examples given which are are highly relevant, varied and interesting.
The topics which I found most useful were for revising Island Biogeography theory; ex situ conservation; and small populations. The book covers all aspects of extinctions in depth and encourages further reading.
Also the book has regional variations so that the copy bought in the UK has British examples (eg about Kew Gardens) along with the international ones. I really enjoyed revising for this module just because of this book as it inspired me to read more, and find the primary papers that he refers to. I only wish that I'd found the previous editions earlier in my degree course. I highly recommend this edition as it is extremely current. I got a first in the final year module for which I used this book mainly I think because this book renewed my enthusiasm for my degree.

This books is a very good option, for the student and for the teacher, very well structured and in a comprehensive language. I think that with the time it should became a Classic Text.
