Because carnivores are at the top of the food chain, it is often argued that protecting them will afford adequate protection to other taxa as well. In the past ten years, theoretical and empirical studies on carnivores have developed very quickly. This volume reviews and summarizes the current state of the field, describes limitations and opportunities for carnivore conservation, and offers a conceptual framework for future research and applied management. It will be of interest to students and researchers of conservation biology, mammalogy, animal behavior, ecology, and evolution.

Book Description:

Carnivores are the focus of intense attention and resources in conservation biology. They are charismatic and compete with humans for dwindling space and other resources. It is often thought that as they are at the top of the food chain, their protection will ensure that of other species in the same community. Carnivore Conservation is a critical review of the current status of the field. Containing chapters on problems, possible solutions, and forecasts for the future, it will be of interest to all those studying carnivores and their conservation.

Review:

"...editors Gittleman et al. have done a fine job...it will be particularly useful to students and teachers as well as field biologists...Editor David Macdonald, an award-winning writer, elegantly concludes the volume with a discussion of the broad social, moral, and economic questions that frame our options for carnivore conservation in the future."
