Protecting life on Earth: an introduction to the science of conservation. Michael P. Marchetti, Peter B. Moyle.

Berkeley: University of California Press, 2010. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs, graphs, maps.

A non-technical, yet comprehensive introduction to the growing field of conservation science. This multifaceted exploration of our current biodiversity crisis delivers vivid examples throughout, including features on some of nature's most compelling wildlife. Beginning with a brief introduction to environmental history, the text introduces the central concepts of evolution and ecology, and covers several major issues related to the conservation of biodiversity including extinction, climate change, sustainability, conservation law, and invasive species. It also touches on adjacent disciples such as economics and sociology as they relate to conservation.
