The fourth edition of Parks and Protected Areas is a comprehensive and engaging overview of park management and planning. The text introduces students to various theoretical approaches and their applications, case studies, and a range of themes and perspectives related to park management, with chapters contributed by a diverse range of experts and scholars in the field. Built on the strong groundwork of the previous editions, the fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, and includes several important changes that will ensure students gain a current understanding of park management. All chapters have been updated to reflect current federal and provincial legislation, and two new chapters - one on climate change and another on urban parks - have been added, as well as information on counteracting falling park attendance through engaging youth and new Canadians, and an increased focus on marine parks. This edition will also feature a brand new image bank containing a complete collection of all images, tables, and figures from the text.
