This book is a significant contribution to the wildlife management and conservation literature... This book will be a solid foundation for a course on this important discipline... The well-written, comprehensive text, numerous illustrations, tables and boxes, summaries, and end-of-chapter questions make a professor's job easy. Highly recommended. * Choice *
