"This is an updated edition of an important book, by two experienced and very knowledgeable people. Aimed at a broad readership, it ranges widely from basic ecological understanding to relevant areas of policy and social science, giving effective guidance for conservation action."
Robert M. May OM AC FRS, University of Oxford
"... a welcome contribution ... this volume provides a valuable new synthesis that combines foundational principles in conservation biology with exciting new advances. Highly recommended."
D. Flaspohler, Choice
"... an outstanding summary of conservation, the issues facing biodiversity, and how working at a multidisciplinary level can achieve positive results. It will be of particular value to students at all levels, and should become a standard textbook especially for undergraduates. I only wish this book had been published when I was at university."
"For students or practitioners who seek a wide-ranging but not-too-technical introduction to core topics of conservation biology, this volume will serve well."
Barry W. Brook, Quarterly Review of Biology
"... the coverage is impressive ... a well-written and well-illustrated account ... will end up as the standard basic textbook in many undergraduate and masters level courses. I would also recommend it as a course textbook because it is cheap enough for students to buy their own copies!"
Robert H. Marrs, Biological Conservation
