About the Authors
  • How does an understanding of the behaviour of a given animal species contribute to its conservation? The answer to this question has profound consequences for our efforts to conserve endangered species. Behaviour and Conservation links the extraordinary advances that have been made in behavioural ecology over the last 30 years with the new discipline of conservation biology. It uses the power of an evolutionary approach to help solve problems in practical conservation, and suggests a new direction for behavioural ecology. The book addresses the ways in which behaviour and conservation interact, investigating the conservation impact of people, habitat loss and fragmentation, threats to wild populations of animals, conservation priorities and the use of behavioural approaches for conservation applications. Leading authorities in animal behaviour outline the relevance of their work to key problems in animal conservation for all researchers and students in the behavioural sciences and conservation biology.

    • Shows how understanding behaviour helps to conserve threatened species
    • Covers impacts of human behaviour on conservation as well as that of animals
    • Leading authorities in field contribute to provide practical conservation measures

    Reviews & endorsements

    ' … an excellent introduction to conservation biology for scientists like myself who have paid little attention to the area … good reading and instructive … I recommend it to all behavioural ecologists as a good way to explore the conservation consequences of their favourite subjects. It is likely a must for all those involved in teaching conservation.' Luc-Alain Giraldeau, Ecoscience

    'The ideas and examples are generally explained in such a way that the book should appeal to the general reader as well as the specialist. Whether you are interested in conservation or the practical applications of behavioural ecology, you are likely to encounter thought provoking ideas in this book.' Paul Elliott, Biological Conservation

    '… this book provides food for thought, with an interesting melting pot of ideas and new perspectives.' Nigel Raine, Animal Conservation
