"The scope of the book is broad and the subject matter logically presented and well-explained." (Bulletin of the British Ecological Society)"This is a most excellent book.... The authors manage to pull the best out of the lessons that wildlife ecology, conservation biology, and habitat management should have taught us over the past 30 years, and present the results in clear, insightful prose."
