Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2002. Octavo, paperback, text illustrations.
The earth's biodversity is currently being lost at an unprecedented rate. Conservationists attempt to reduce these losses by protecting and restoring species and habitats: correct information is vital. Using examples from bird conservation, this book describes and discusses the scientific principles conservationists use, and shows how these principles are applied to real problems. Conserving Bird Biodiversity takes a ‘problem'-based approach, differing from other volumes that discuss either general conservation principles or practical techniques. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in conservation biology and wildlife management. Also available in hardcover.
