This book is the wildlife management reference published by The Wildlife Society. Put together by Clait Braun, an expert in the field, this book is a very valuable reference for students of wildlife management and inquisitive wildlife managers alike. There is quite a bit of knowledge here that would be difficult to locate any where else. You would have to search hundreds if not thousands of journal articles to gather this much information. Recommended.

I'm an integrative biology major and this book has to be one of the worst textbooks I've ever had to use...of any subject.

First off, it's a monster -- nearly a thousand pages, and it weighs probably 20 lbs. Therein lies one of the few redeeming features -- there's a lot of info in this book. The bibliographies are large and the text is well-supported too.

It's not that this book is poor in substance, because there is a lot of that, but it's just that the usability and practicality of the book is very low. There are no highlighted or emboldened terms, methods, etc. and no glossary. Oftentimes, it presents a new term without giving a definition -- sometimes it only gives a few random examples and leaves it up to you piece together a definition for a five-word-long piece of wildlife management jargon that you usually can't even find when googling for it.

The pages are big and the font is on the small side. There also aren't a lot of images or illustrations showing the methods. Props to the many contributing authors, but the book is poorly edited in the clarity, readability, & organization department.

If the publisher would polish this up with a re-edit, glossy pages, boldened terms with a glossary, more people would probably find it easier to understand and then to apply the information inside this book. And at that point, I think I could find it in my heart to give this book five stars.

Again, I want to emphasize that this review is for this book being used as a *textbook* in a college course on wildlife management. I'm sure professionals in this field would rate it higher, since they use it as a reference book for their livelihood and not as a textbook.
