Anyone working with wildlife must be concerned with its habitat—its identification, measurement, and analysis. Wildlife-Habitat Relationships goes beyond introductory wildlife biology texts and specialized studies of single species to provide a broad but advanced understanding of habitat relationships applicable to all terrestrial species. It also includes coverage of spatial analysis, landscape ecology, animal populations and their quantification, behavioral studies, and resources available to the wildlife professional.
Completely updated with the latest research results and literature, this Second Edition provides new sections on:
• vegetation ecology and its role in animal distribution and habitat use;
• factors driving animal population dynamics;
• approaches to study design and experimental methodologies;
• ecosystem management and other new initiatives in habitat management;
• reviews research and concepts of habitat corridors, fragmentation, and connectivity, for maintaining metapopulations and population viability;
• the advancement of wildlife education.
This edition also offers greatly expanded coverage of the growing field of landscape ecology, including new chapters on habitat heterogeneity and responses of wildlife and on habitat isolation, dynamics, and monitoring. Behavioral ecology and habitat measurement are covered in greater depth, as well.
