Description

In the new edition of this highly successful book, Malcolm Hunter and new co-author James Gibbs offer a thorough introduction to the fascinating and important field of conservation biology, focusing on what can be done to maintain biodiversity through management of ecosystems and populations.

  • Starting with a succinct look at conservation and biodiversity, this book progresses to contend with some of the subject's most complex topics, such as mass extinctions, ecosystem degradation, and over exploitation.
  • Discusses social, political, and economic aspects of conservation biology.
  • Thoroughly revised with over six hundred new references and web links to many of the organizations involved in conservation biology, striking photographs and maps.
