Managing Our Wildlife Resources
by Stanley Anderson
Edition: 4th., 2001
Are you planning a career in wildlife management? Or do you just have an interest in wildlife? Either way, Managing Our Wildlife Resources, fourth edition, is the answer. With a sound historical background and a firm foundation on principles, this new edition provides readers with management techniques that can be used at all levels, from regional to international.
One of the biggest changes facing wildlife managers today is the power available to them through the political process. The experience and the ability to deal with people such as landowners or conservation groups that lobby to conduct actions affecting natural resources is necessary. Managing Our Wildlife Resources provides examples of techniques needed and used by managers in handling this new power.
Some features of the new edition include:
- Updated coverage of wildlife management laws, with numerous supporting examples.
- Practical information on how to obtain a job in the wildlife field and what types of organizations hire wildlife biologists, is now included.
- Animal damage issues, now confronting managers, are discussed.
