Essentials of Conservation Biology
“Essentials of Conservation Biology provides everything you could want from a textbook on the subject. Descriptions are clear and unpretentious, and the language is suitable for people from all backgrounds. Full-colour photographs and illustrations complement the text, whilst graphs and tables clearly show useful date. The text covers a variety of topics, providing an excellent background for non-biologists. Summary and discussion points at the end of each chapter provide direct conclusions, in addition to areas for debate. Well chosen case-studies add substance to the text and help to prove that conservation biology is very much a practical science, based upon basic ecological theories. … The author claims that he has intended to provide the reader with ‘a greater appreciation of the goals, methods, and importance of conservation biology’. I feel that he has certainly done this and more, in a clear and detailed manner.”
—Matthew Iles, The Canadian Field-Naturalist
