9780878934010: A Primer of Conservation Behavior

Conservation behavior is the application of knowledge of animal behavior to solve wildlife conservation problems. The goal of this Primer is to nurture the development of biologists interested in using specific animal behavior conceptual and methodological tools to aid in solving biological conservation and wildlife management problems. While there are a number of excellent reviews and edited volumes that discuss the integration of behavior and conservation biology, there has been no practical guide fostering integration and showing how to apply these methodologies to issues that would benefit from an animal behavior perspective. This book is broadly aimed at biologists interested in or practicing conservation biology and wildlife management, including undergraduate and graduate students, conservation biologists, ecologists, wildlife managers, zoo personnel, animal behaviorists, and behavioral ecologists.

Review:


"This is a compelling read; I went cover to cover without putting it down. The authors have made a significant and helpful contribution here and one that will surely inspire young behavioral ecologists to keep probing the links between behavior and conservation."--John P. Swaddle, The Quarterly Review of Biology


"A worthwhile read for students and professionals alike who are concerned with conservation and management of captive and wild populations."--Malgorzata Wisniewska et al., Biological Conservation
