Synopsis: Conserving Living Natural Resources is an introductory textbook for students of conservation biology and resource management. It presents the historical and conceptual contexts of three seminal approaches to the management of living natural resources: utilitarian management for harvest of featured species and control of unwanted species, protection and restoration of populations and habitats to maintain biodiversity, and management of complex ecosystems to sustain both productivity and biodiversity. Rather than endorsing a single approach as the only correct one, this book investigates the historical and philosophical contexts, conceptual frameworks, principal techniques, and the limitations of each approach.

Book Description: Conserving Living Natural Resources is an introductory textbook for students of conservation biology and resource management. No prior knowledge of biological sciences or natural resource management is assumed, and the book is written in such a way as to encourage students to think critically about evidence and its interpretation. Each of the three main concepts of conservation are discussed in an historical context (utilitarianism, habitat protection and restoration, and whole-ecosystem management) and the limitations and advantages of each of the approaches are explained. Essential reading for conservation biology courses.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Conserving Living Natural Resources is an introductory textbook for students of conservation biology and resource management. It presents the historical and conceptual contexts of three seminal approaches to the management of living natural resources: utilitarian management for harvest of featured species and control of unwanted species, protection and restoration of populations and habitats to maintain biodiversity, and management of complex ecosystems to sustain both productivity and biodiversity. The book shows how the first two approaches were grounded in the belief that nature is in balance and that people are outsiders, and then goes on to show how the flux-of-nature paradigm suggests new strategies for conservation grounded in a view of nature as dynamic, and people as participants in the natural world. Rather than endorsing a single approach as the only correct one, this book investigates the historical and philosophical contexts, conceptual frameworks, principal techniques, and the limitations of each approach.
