Carnivore Conservation, Paperback / softback Book


Carnivores are the focus of intense attention and resources in conservation biology.

It is often argued that, because carnivores are at the top of the food chain, if they are protected, then other taxa will also be afforded adequate protection.

Carnivores are also charismatic and compete with humans for dwindling space and environmental resources.

In the past 10 years, theoretical and empirical studies on carnivores have developed very quickly.

This volume reviews and summarises the current state of the field, describes limitations and opportunities for carnivore conservation, and offers a conceptual framework for future research and applied management.

As such it will be of interest to students and researchers of conservation biology, mammalogy, animal behaviour, ecology and evolution.
