Professor L. Scott Mills has been named a 2009 Guggenheim Fellow by the board of trustees of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides an accessible introduction to the most relevant concepts and principles for solving real-world management problems in wildlife and conservation biology. Bringing together insights from traditionally disparate disciplines, the book shows how population biology addresses important questions involving the harvest, monitoring, and conservation of wildlife populations.
Artwork from the book is available to instructors online at www.blackwellpublishing.com/mills. An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available. Please contact our Higher Education team at HigherEducation@wiley.com for more information.

Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides an accessible introduction to the most relevant concepts and principles for solving real-world management problems in wildlife and conservation biology. Bringing together insights from traditionally disparate disciplines, the book shows how population biology addresses important questions involving the harvest, monitoring, and conservation of wildlife populations. The most up-to-date approaches for assessing factors that affect both population growth and interactions with other species are covered in detail, including predation, genetic changes, harvest, introduced species, viability analysis, and habitat loss and fragmentation.
Conservation of Wildlife Populations is an essential guide for undergraduates and postgraduate students of wildlife biology, conservation biology, ecology, and environmental studies; and will be invaluable for practising managers requiring an up-to-date assessment of how population biology can be applied to wildlife conservation and management.About the Author:
L. Scott Mills is a Professor in the Wildlife Biology Program at the University of Montana. His research and teaching integrates field studies with population models and genetic analyses to understand effects of human perturbations on wildlife populations.

Summary: "Scott Mills has written an excellent textbook designed to make undergraduates think and to guide them to understanding of how modern methods of population biology are applied by wildlife biologists. The themes of genetics and population dynamics run through the book with succinct expositions of theory and vivid examples from real problems facing the practitioner." -Professor Henry M Wilbur, University of Virginia "Scott Mills cleverly bridges the gap between conservation genetics and population ecology; a connection often given short thrift in more specialized titles. The writing style is engaging, and technical concepts are regularly reinforced with interesting real-world examples." -Barry W Brook, Charles Darwin University "Scott Mills' Conservation of Wildlife Populations is a significant contribution to the literature. I found it thorough, readable, and useful in dealing with this increasingly important aspect of wildlife and conservation biology. Well done!" -Professor Jack W Thomas, University of Montana "Finally! . a book that combines the nuts and bolts of basic population growth and population estimation techniques (including genetic techniques) with PVA and harvest modeling while using applied examples from real wildlife populations! Now I don't have to use two books plus cobble together readings from various sources in order to teach my upper division Population Dynamics course! This book will make it so much easier on instructors and students alike." -Dr Marcella Kelly, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1405121467
