Management Planning for Nature Conservation : A Theoretical Basis & Practical Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Management Planning for Nature Conservation : A Theoretical Basis & Practical Guide Paperback / softback


The first edition of Mike Alexander's Management Planning for Nature Conservation, brought a new dimension to the modern literature on conservation management.

This second edition, a significant enhancement of the original, deals with the development both, conceptual and practical, of adaptive management planning for nature conservation.

It is about preparing management plans, and guides the reader through the entire process.

Case-studies, including a conservation and access plan, demonstrate the planning process in action.

This approach to planning can be applied to any place which is managed entirely, or in part, for wildlife.

It can be applied to the management of species or habitats in any circumstance, regardless of site designation.

The process is fully compatible with the Convention on Biological Diversity's `ecosystem approach' to conservation management. Mike Alexander has long been at the forefront of developing management planning for conservation, with experience ranging from Uganda to Estonia, and from Costa Rica to Wales. He is the General Secretary of the Conservation Management System Consortium, a group of organisations with a common aim of raising standards and developing best practice in conservation management and planning.

In 2012 Mike Alexander was elected a Fellow of the Society of Biology in recognition of his contribution to nature conservation and in particular management planning. This book has drawn on the experiences and expertise of the CMS consortium and other leaders in both conservation research and wildlife management from around the world. It is essential reading for professional conservation managers and any student studying management planning for conservation within a range of degree and postgraduate courses.
