Wildlife-Habitat Relationships goes beyond introductory wildlife biology texts to provide wildlife professionals and students with an understanding of the importance of habitat relationships in studying and managing wildlife. The book offers a unique synthesis and critical evaluation of data, methods, and studies, along with specific guidance on how to conduct rigorous studies. Now in its third edition, Wildlife-Habitat Relationships combines basic field zoology and natural history, evolutionary biology, ecological theory, and quantitative tools in explaining ecological processes and their influence on wildlife and habitats. Also included is a glossary of terms that every wildlife professional should know.

"Learning about the habitat requirements of plants and animals is a fundamental part of ecology, making the new edition of this seminal book a must-read for all ecologists and conservation biologists."
(David B. Lindenmayer Research Professor, Centre for Resource & Environmental Studies, Australian National Univ., Canberra)
"Biologists may never completely understand the wildlife they study. However, one universal truth is that wildlife requires habitat to survive. Wildlife-Habitat Relationships: Concepts and Applications is the most authoritative, theoretical, and practical text for students and practicing professionals to better understand, conserve, and manage habitats for wildlife."
(Paul R. Krausman Professor of wildlife sciences, University of Arizona)
"Thoroughly updated, this newest edition of Wildlife-Habitat Relationships contains fundamental tools and principles for students and practitioners of the art and science of wildlife conservation seen through the critical eyes of those who pioneered contemporary wildlife ecology and management. It is a must-read for anyone interested in saving what remains of nature's legacy and making informed decisions about wildlife management within the context of a contemporary and science-based land ethic."
(Dominick A. DellaSala executive director, National Center for Conservation Science and Policy, Ashland, Oregon)
"This book's coverage of analysis and interpretation of wildlife-habitat relationships is unique...Morrison, Marcot, and Mannan are to be commended for providing a well done and much needed contribution to the wildlife management literature."
