Essentials of Conservation Biology, Second Edition is an updated and improved version of the successful first edition, and includes current examples, study questions and the latest literature. It combines theory and research findings to explain links between conservation biology and environmental economics, ethics, law and the social sciences. Dr Primack stresses how local people, the general public and governments can all play a part in protecting biological diversity. He further emphasizes the need for sustainable development--providing for human needs without harming biodiversity. Clearly written, beautifully illustrated and with over 1,000 bibliographic references, this broadly based book will be enjoyed by not only biology undergraduates and graduates but also students and researchers in other disciplines.
