Overview

The biggest challenge facing natural resource conservation efforts today is to maintain biological diversity and viable ecosystems. This requires the best available scientific information on the relationships between individual species and their habitat.

Wildlife-Habitat Relationships in Oregon and Washington is the first book to compile and synthesize in a single convenient, comprehensive volume a vast amount of diverse information on 593 wildlife species and their relationships with the 32 terrestrial, freshwater, and marine habitat types of Oregon and Washington.

Included are color photographs of each habitat type, as well as hundreds of maps, diagrams, and other illustrations. In addition, a separate CD-ROM (included with the book) contains additional wildlife data and color maps, and seven matrixes that link wildlife species with their respective habitat types.

The 88 contributing authors include experts in wildlife, botany, fisheries, conservation biology, vegetation mapping, and the ecology of forest, rangeland, and marine environments, among other fields.

Intended for use by natural resource managers and planners, scientists, conservationists, educators, and other individuals with a deep interest in wildlife species and their habitats, this book is sure to be a valuable resource and standard reference for many years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This volume provides information about the terrestrial, freshwater, and marine habitats of Oregon and Washington and the wildlife that depend upon them; it also supports broader and more consistent conservation planning, management, and research. The 27 chapters identify 593 wildlife species, define some 300 wildlife terms, profile wildlife communities, review introduced and extirpated species and species at risk, and discuss management approaches. The volume includes color and b&w photographs, maps, diagrams, and illustrations; and the accompanying CD-ROM contains additional wildlife data (60,000 records), maps, and seven matrixes that link wildlife species with their respective habitat types. Johnson is a wildlife biologist, engineer, and habitat scientist; and O'Neill is director of the Northwest Habitat Institute; they worked together on this publication project as its managing directors.
