Provides a clear overview of the management and conservation of animals, their habitats, and how people influence both. The relationship among these three components of wildlife management is explained in chapters written by leading experts and is designed to prepare wildlife students for careers in which they will be charged with maintaining healthy animal populations; finding ways to restore depleted populations while reducing overabundant, introduced, or pest species; and managing relationships among various human stakeholders. Topics covered in this book include: the definitions of wildlife and management; human dimensions of wildlife management; animal behaviour; predator-prey relationships; structured decision making; issues of scale in wildlife management; wildlife health; historical context of wildlife management and conservation; hunting and trapping; nongame species; nutrition ecology; water management; climate change; and conservation planning.
