Ian Spellerberg and John Sawyer bring a modern and new approach to an old subject. Throughout the text the applications of biogeography in conservation management, economic production, environmental assessment, sustainable use of resources, landscape planning and public health are emphasised. Applications of island biogeography in conservation are critically appraised, analysis of biogeographical data is explained, the concept of wildlife corridors is questioned and the role of humans and their cultures in biogeography is explored."--Jacket." ;
