"This book has one very interesting feature: it comes with a CD Rom complete with exercises and an evaluation copy of a mathematical calculating/drawing program called Mathcad.... Overall, a comprehensive text, well designed, aimed at the more experienced student/conservationist." (Teaching Ecology Group Newsletter)

"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."
John Anderson, College of the Atlantic
