Abstract:

Intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a basic background in biology and ecology, this textbook introduces essential concepts in conservation biology. Eighteen chapters are divided into three main sections: foundations of the field, threats to biodiversity, and approaches to solving conservation problems. Conservation methods described range from the use of genetic tools for the management of specific populations to ecosystem-level programs. Case studies found in each chapter provide real world examples of the concepts discussed.
