The Conservation Handbook: Research, Management and Policy
by William Sutherland
Textbooks on the principles of conservation biology abound. Yet, how does one put this theoretical knowledge into practice? The aim of The Conservation Handbook is to provide clear guidance on the implementation of conservation techniques. The wide range of methods described include those for ecological research, monitoring, planning, education, habitat management and combining conservation with development. Nineteen case studies illustrate how the methods have been applied. The book will be of interest to conservation biology students and practicing conservationists worldwide.
For each copy of the book sold, another copy will be sent free to a practicing conservationist outside Western Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
- Concise, practical guide packed full of ideas, methods and advice.
- Provides solutions for the main conservation problems most commonly encountered.
- 18 global case studies illustrate the application of techniques.
