Winner of the 2006 Whitley Award for Best Conservation TextPractical Conservation Biology covers the complete array of topics that are central to conservation biology and natural resource management, thus providing the essential framework for under-graduate and post-graduate courses in these subject areas.

Written by two of the world's leading environment experts, it is a 'must have' reference for environment professionals in government, non-government and industry sectors.

The book reflects the latest thinking on key topics such as extinction risks, losses of genetic variability, threatening processes, fire effects, landscape fragmentation, habitat loss and vegetation clearing, reserve design, sustainable harvesting of natural populations, population viability analysis, risk assessment, conservation biology policy, human population growth and its impacts on biodiversity.

Practical Conservation Biology deals primarily with the Australian context but also includes many overseas case studies.

The book is the most comprehensive assessment of conservation topics in Australia and one of the most comprehensive worldwide.
