Conservation Biology in Theory and Practice is an authoritative and practical guide to the preservation of species in danger of extinction. Anne Gunn and the late Graeme Caughley explain and critique the current theories in conservation biology, supported by an introduction to population dynamics and genetics. Numerous case histories of past extinctions and near extinctions illustrate how and why species are driven into decline. These examples demonstrate how trends toward extinction can be identified and successfully halted or reversed through scientific method and practical ecological knowledge. Conservation Biology in Theory and Practice will increase your understanding of the theoretical risks facing small populations. It is an insightful and practical guide for anyone who has ever wondered about the causes of extinction and what we can do to help preserve wildlife.
