Editorial Reviews


"Nearly two decades ago, geneticists, evolutionary biologists and ecologists turned their attention to applying their science and talents to provide information that would slow the extinction of species and destruction of ecosystems. Recently behavioural biologists have discovered that they too are conservation biologists. . . . This book joins a growing number of volumes and journal articles aimed at demonstrating that conservation requires an understanding of animal behaviour. It consists of an introduction, an afterword, an epilogue and 17 chapters divided among six sections. . . . Behavioral Ecology and Conservation Biology belongs on the bookshelves of behaviourists and conservation biologists . . . as [a] basic [reference] for understanding how behavioural processes apply to conservation. . . . [It] should help behavioural scientists make greater contributions to conserving the earth's declining biological diversity."--Animal Behaviour

"Conservation biology is multidisciplinary science that utilizes principles and methods from a number of sciences such as ecology, population biology and genetic, systematics, and behaviour. However, there are relatively few books or papers that explore the discipline and then demonstrate those concepts and methodologies that apply to conservation biology. This volume attempts to do that in the area of behavioral ecology. . . .Each of the 18 chapters (excluding the two chapters written by the editor) provide overviews of some aspect of behavioral ecology and then provides the strengths and weaknesses of that behavior for use in conservation biology, recommendations for the future, and a summary of the chapter. . . .I believe this book should be on the bookshelves on any person involved with behavior, ecology, and conservation." -- Ecology

"--This book represents the views of most behavioral ecologists on conservation biology. . .This book, which is indexed and referenced, should be useful for anyone interested in behavioral ecology and conservation biology."--BIOSIS, Volume 51, Issue 4
