This book, intended as a supplement to a conservation biology or wildlife management textbook, provides a series of exercises for the field, lab or classroom. Topics range from population viability analysis to conservation planning, rare species occurrence, and gap analysis. The authors plan to develop a web site in conjunction with the book so that free-ware programmes and other information can be downloaded for use in some of the exercises.

  • Perfect as a field manual as well as a course textbook.
  • An instructors manual will also be available.
  • Web site provides downloadable exercises.
