examples enable readers to practice calculations explained in the
text and to develop a solid understanding of key statistical
procedures and population models commonly used in wildlife ecology
and management.The first half of the book provides a solid
background in key ecological concepts. The second half uses these
concepts to develop a deeper understanding of the principles
underlying wildlife management and conservation. Global examples of
real-life management situations provide a broad perspective on the
international problems of conservation, and detailed case histories
demonstrate concepts and quantitative analyses. This third edition
isalso valuable to professional wildlife managers, park rangers,
biological resource managers, and thoseworking in ecotourism.
