This beautifully illustrated textbook introduces students to conservation biology, the science of preserving biodiversity. Conservation biology is fast emerging as a major new discipline, which incorporates biological principles in the design of effective strategies for the sustainable management of populations, species and entire ecosystems. This book begins by taking the reader on a tour of the many and varied ecosystems of our planet, providing a setting in which to explore the factors that have led to the alarming loss of biodiversity that we now see. In particular the fondamental problems of habitat loss and fragmentation, habitat disturbance and the non-sustainable exploitation of species in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are explored. The methods that have been developed to address these problems, from the most traditional forms of conservation, creation of protected areas and single-species programmes, to new approaches at genetic to landscape scales are then discussed, showing how the science can be put into practice.

Biographie d'Andrew-S Pullin

Andrew S. Pullin is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham, where he has been teaching Environmental Biology, Ecology and Conservation Biology for a number of years. His research interests include the ecology and conservation of invertebrates, the assessment of biodiversity at species and genetic levels, and the relationship between conservation science and practice. His work has taken him to many exotic locations, including the tropics and the Arctic, where he has obtained first band experience of a wide range of conservation problems. In addition to his academic work, he is also involved in the practical aspects of conservation, and serves on the council of several nongovernmental conservation organisations. He is involved in the implementation of several species and habitat action plans, placing him in an excellent position to consider the relationship between conservation problems, conservation science and conservation action. Andrew is the Editor of Ecology and Conservation of Butterflies (1995) and the Journal of Insect Conservation.
