9780521181686: Conservation

The importance of conservation is growing each year, with increasing concerns over the destruction of biodiversity and the rising awareness of ecosystem services generating new debates on the human-nature relationship. This compact overview integrates the process, theory and practice of conservation for a broad readership, from non-specialists to students and practitioners. Taking a global perspective, it uses examples from around the world to illustrate general themes and show how problems arise from the impact of societal trends on ecological communities. A significant practical component will be particularly valuable for environmental professionals, outlining the requirements for rigorous surveys, biodiversity valuation, the assessment of impact and its mitigation. Thoroughly revised and updated, this second edition reflects trends towards embracing multiple disciplines, considering the links between ecology and the social sciences and bringing conservation to the heart of sustainability and environmental policy.

Recensione:

'This book is exceptional in many ways. It captures the essence of the naturalist's fascination with the diversity of life while at the same time covering comprehensively the history and basics of conservation biology and the importance of conservation for the future of our planet. I am particularly pleased with the attention to priority-setting, and other important issues such as corridors, rewilding, the fundamental importance of species, and how essential ecosystem services derive from biodiversity. In the post Rio+20 world, there is growing recognition of the fact that nature must be central to sustainable development and not just an interesting side issue. This book makes a major contribution to demonstrating this, and overall greatly enhances our understanding of conservation in general. A must read for everyone, and especially for students, researchers, and conservation practitioners.' Russell A. Mittermeier, President, Conservation International

'This is an updated edition of an important book, by two experienced and very knowledgeable people. Aimed at a broad readership, it ranges widely from basic ecological understanding to relevant areas of policy and social science, giving effective guidance for conservation action.' Robert M. May OM AC FRS, University of Oxford

'… an outstanding summary of conservation, the issues facing biodiversity, and how working at a multidisciplinary level can achieve positive results. It will be of particular value to students at all levels, and should become a standard textbook especially for undergraduates. I only wish this book had been published when I was at university.' Ibis

'For students or practitioners who seek a wide-ranging but not-too-technical introduction to core topics of conservation biology, this volume will serve well.' Barry W. Brook, Quarterly Review of Biology

'… the coverage is impressive … a well-written and well-illustrated account … will end up as the standard basic textbook in many undergraduate and masters level courses. I would also recommend it as a course textbook because it is cheap enough for students to buy their own copies!' Robert H. Marrs, Biological Conservation

Descrizione del libro:

Using examples from around the world, this compact overview integrates the process, theory and practice of conservation. Greatly revised and updated, this second edition reflects recent trends towards multidisciplinarity and emphasises the broader picture of conservation, showing how general themes, patterns and drivers come together at local levels.
