Principles of Conservation Biology, Third Edition, features a wholly revised organization, emphasizing analyses of different categories of threat and approaches to conservation. Coverage has been expanded to incorporate both terrestrial and marine conservation issues, and efforts in the U.S. and across the globe.

The book's eighteen chapters introduce the major themes and concepts of this diverse and dynamic field. The biological and social underpinnings of conservation problems and potential solutions are interwoven throughout the text, which is divided into three sections: foundations of the field, threats to biodiversity, and approaches to solving conservation problems. Guest essays and case studies provide a diversity of perspectives and real-world examples that add insight and provoke discussion. The text is richly illustrated, and concludes with an extensive glossary and bibliography.

This book is intended for use in conservation biology courses at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as by researchers and practitioners, and assumes a basic background in biology and ecology.

Companion Website

Review:


"The preface also calls attention to the multiple voices that are represented by the many diverse contributors to the volume. These voices blend together incredibly well, and although they speak to different topics, they combine to produce an integrated whole. The result is more than an outstanding textbook for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. It is also a state-of-the-art reference for anyone seeking an authoritative introduction to the weighty subject of conservation biology."--Karen B. Strier, The Quarterly Review of Biology


"I would like to recommend this book not only to teachers of conservation or their students, but also to other biologists, ecologists, and of course to people responsible for developing political instruments that accompany the ecological view on biodiversity conservation."--Folia Geobotanica
