About the Authors
  • As it becomes ever more expensive to purchase land for conservation purposes, it is becoming increasingly important both to manage existing sites properly, and to create new habitats. This comprehensive volume provides a pragmatic, habitat by habitat guide to conservation management, in which the prescriptions and methods are based upon sound science coupled with practical experience. For each habitat, the book guides the reader through the options and solutions, shows the problems to look out for, and gives good and bad examples of habitat management in the past. This will be a must for all practising ecologists, land managers, wardens, landscape architects and conservationists, and will provide a valuable reference for students of ecology, conservation and environmental science.

    • First practical, habitat by habitat guide to conservation management
    • Chapters written by experts in the field - George Peterken, Chris Baines, David Bellamy etc
    • Profusely illustrated - 19 colour prints, 121 black and white photographs
