The use of wildlife for food and other human needs poses one of the greatest threats to the conservation of the world's biodiversity. This volume explores the biology and conservation of species that are taken from the wild, ranging from Amazonian mammals hunted by indigenous peoples to large-scale commercial fisheries. It reviews basic ecological principles for sustainable exploitation - including impacts on wildlife, habitats, and ecosystems - combined with discussions of how to strike a balance between conservation goals and the commercial and social needs of those who depend upon wildlife. Also available in hardcover.
