This set of exercises has been created expressly for students and teachers of conservation biology and wildlife management who want to have an impact beyond the classroom. The book presents a set of 32 exercises that are primarily new and greatly revised versions from the book's successful first edition. These exercises span a wide range of conservation issues: genetic analysis, population biology and management, taxonomy, ecosystem management, land use planning, the public policy process and more. All exercises discuss how to take what has been learned and apply it to practical, real-world issues. Accompanied by a detailed instructor’s manual and a student website with software and support materials, the book is ideal for use in the field, lab, or classroom.

Seit der Konvention der Vereinten Nationen im Jahre 1992 zum Schutz der biologischen Vielfalt, dem sog. Rio-Abkommen, ist Biodiversit?t weltweit zu einem Begriff f?r ein hohes Gut der Menschheit geworden, das es zu bewahren gilt. Inzwischen ist klar geworden, dass (fast) alles, was in einem ?kosystem abl?uft, von seinen Organismen bewerkstelligt wird, und dass die Vielfalt dieser Organismengemeinschaften die Leistungen und die Stabilit?t der Land- und Meeres?kosysteme bedingt. Viele dieser Leistungen nutzt der Mensch, ohne sie k?nnte er nicht leben. Von uns oft nicht bemerkt, wirkt die Biodiversit?t unaufh?rlich in unser t?gliches Leben hinein. Prof. Erwin Beck, Vorsitzender der Senatskommission f?r Biodiversit?tsforschung in der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft hat dieses Lesebuch herausgegeben, das dem Leser nicht nur die ungeheure Vielfalt des Lebens auf der Erde n?herbringt, sondern auch in einer gut verst?ndlichen Sprache die Prinzipien und die Bedeutung der Biodiversit?t f?r das Leben auf der Erde aufzeigt. Moderne Methoden der Entdeckung und Erfassung der Vielfalt der Organismen, ihr Werden und Vergehen, ihre Verteilung ?ber Land und Meere werden ebenso angesprochen wie die Mechanismen der Wechselwirkung zwischen verschiedenen Organismen und des ?berlebens in extremen Lebensr?umen. Dar?ber hinaus widmet sich das Werk dem komplexen und keineswegs immer negativen Zusammenspiel von menschlichen Einfl?ssen und Biodiversit?t, und es diskutiert die verschiedenen Ans?tze, um dieses Zusammenspiel zum Nutzen von Natur und Mensch zu verbessern. Alle Kapitel wurden von prominenten Experten geschrieben und von der Wissenschaftsjournalistin Claudia von See aufgearbeitet und in eine gut lesbare Buchform gebracht. Auf Grund seiner Bedeutung wird das Buch als eine der ganz wenigen Publikationen Deutschlands von allen wichtigen Wissenschaftsinstitutionen und Forschungsf?rderern unterst?tzt.

Professor L. Scott Mills has been named a 2009 Guggenheim Fellow by the board of trustees of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides an accessible introduction to the most relevant concepts and principles for solving real-world management problems in wildlife and conservation biology. Bringing together insights from traditionally disparate disciplines, the book shows how population biology addresses important questions involving the harvest, monitoring, and conservation of wildlife populations. Covers the most up-to-date approaches for assessing factors that affect both population growth and interactions with other species, including predation, genetic changes, harvest, introduced species, viability analysis and habitat loss and fragmentation. Is an essential guide for undergraduates and postgraduate students of wildlife biology, conservation biology, ecology, and environmental studies and an invaluable resource for practising managers on how population biology can be applied to wildlife conservation and management. Artwork from the book is available to instructors online at www.blackwellpublishing.com/mills. An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available.

Past progress and future challenges R.J. Wheater Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK. In the past two decades much has been achieved in the sphere of breeding endangered species, and we should be pleased that our co operative efforts have already borne so much fruit. However, on balance and despite the best efforts of conservationists, the position of wildlife in the wild places where they are best conserved has become worse, often dramatically worse. Before returning to the United Kingdom in 1972, I was in Uganda for 16 years, most of which time was spent as Chief Warden of Murchison Falls National Park. Our main problem was that an over-population of large mammals was having a devastating impact on the habitat. Devas tation was being wrought on woodland areas by the arrival of large numbers of elephants into the sanctuary of the Park, following changes in land use in the areas outside the Park. These changes were in response to the requirements of an ever-expanding human population.
