Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book has one very interesting feature: it comes with a CD Rom complete with exercises and an evaluation copy of a mathematical calculating/drawing program called Mathcad.... Overall, a comprehensive text, well designed, aimed at the more experienced student/conservationist." (Teaching Ecology Group Newsletter)

"The scope of the book is broad and the subject matter logically presented and well-explained." (Bulletin of the British Ecological Society)

Review

"This is a most excellent book.... The authors manage to pull the best out of the lessons that wildlife ecology, conservation biology, and habitat management should have taught us over the past 30 years, and present the results in clear, insightful prose."
John Anderson, College of the Atlantic

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent text May 13, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a most excellent book. Aimed at the intermediate to advanced student Sinclair et al.'s book covers an enormous amount of ground with detail and grace. The authors manage to pull the best out of the lessons that wildlife ecology, conservation biology, and habitat management should have taught us over the past 30 years, and present the results in clear insightful prose. While this book is not for the faint of heart -it does NOT scrimp on mathematical modelling- the examples presented are straight and to the point, and running it by a small seminar of (admittedly clever) undergrads I found them well able to keep up with what was going on. What I really like about WECAM (excuse the abbreviation) is the real attempt to integrate the three often all-too-disconnected "disciplines" of the title. Throughout one gets the sense that these folks are professionals who have been out in the field AND ALSO in front of the computer and are presenting stuff that has really worked for them. Beyond the text itself there is a useful glossary of terminology plus an exhaustive Lit. Cited that is worth the price of admission by itself. -oh yeah, speaking of price. this book is significantly cheaper than other texts in the field, has a CD with working examples of the models attached, and even in paperback is well constructed & won't fall apart in student backpacks when you tell 'em to "bring the book" on overnight field trips. Most Excellent!
