9780632053445: The Conservation Handbook: Research, Management and Policy

Textbooks on the principles of conservation biology abound. Yet, how does one put this theoretical knowledge into practice? The aim of The Conservation Handbook is to provide clear guidance on the implementation of conservation techniques. The wide range of methods described include those for ecological research, monitoring, planning, education, habitat management and combining conservation with development. Nineteen case studies illustrate how the methods have been applied. The book will be of interest to conservation biology students and practicing conservationists worldwide.

For each copy of the book sold, another copy will be sent free to a practicing conservationist outside Western Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.


  • Foreword by E. O. Wilson.
  • Concise, practical guide packed full of ideas, methods and advice.
  • Provides solutions for the main conservation problems most commonly encountered.
  • 18 global case studies illustrate the application of techniques.
  • The Conservation Handbook Donations Project
    this book is being sent free to those practising conservationists outside Western Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan who are otherwise unlikely to obtain a copy. These copies are provided at cost price by Blackwell Science, the publisher, and paid for with the author''s royalties. Each book sold means another one will be donated.

From the Back Cover:

The Conservation Handbook is a practical guide describing precisely what conservationists should do. It is not a textbook but, like the author's edited books on habitat management and census techniques, it will be of use to undergraduate students as well as to conservation professionals.

Review:

"This is an eminently practical publication. [...] The book is packed with useful information ranging from sections on international agreements, campaigning and fund-raising to descriptions of how to age plants and animals. [...] The strong emphasis throughout on integrating conservation with human development is to be welcomed and will do much to enhance the book's appeal overseas, especially in developing countries. [...] this is a very readable, comprehensive text that fills an important niche." Animal Welfare, Nov 2001

"Overall, the book is a very useful handbook for conservationists both in the industrialised countries and especially for those working in developing countries. [...] To conclude, William Sutherland has written a fine and useful book." Jari Niemela, Biodiversity & Conservation

"The strong emphasis throughout the book on integrating conservation with human development is welcomed, and will enhance the book's appeal overseas, especially in developing countries." EASA News, August 2003
