This book reviews the latest thinking and approaches, and in doing so provides a readily accessible reference work for conservation professionals and managers. Because conservation biology is now one of the most dynamic disciplines in the life sciences, William Sutherland and his international team of authors have selected many of the liveliest topics where key advances are currently being made. They stress ideas, point to unresolved issues, and suggest possible future developments. Finally, since conservation is an applied subject, the book's emphasis throughout is on action.
