  • 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.
