Description

Anne Gunn and the late Graeme Caughley explain and critique the current theories in conservation biology, supported by an introduction to population dynamics and genetics.

Anne Gunn and the late Graeme Caughley explain and critique the current theories in conservation biology, supported by an introduction to population dynamics and genetics. Numerous case histories of past extinctions and near extinctions illustrate how and why species are driven into decline. These examples demonstrate how trends toward extinction can be identified and successfully halted or reversed through scientific method and practical ecological knowledge

Conservation Biology in Theory and Practice. Directions in Conservation Biology. 1. Conservation biology has two threads: the small-population paradigm which deals with the effect of smallness on the persistence of a population, and the paradigm which deals with the cause of smallness and its cure. 2. The processes relevant to the small-population paradigm are amenable to theoretical examination because they generalize across species and are subsumed by an inclusive higher category: stochasticity.

Book Publishing WeChat. Caughley, . & Gunn, A. (1996). Cambridge, MA: Blackwell Science. A common factor influencing effectiveness of conservation work undertaken by the diverse mix of government, non-government and civil organisations is leadership.

This is an up-to-date and comprehensive look at the increasingly important subject of population management and conservation. Drawing on case studies of previous extinctions and near-extinctions, the authors discuss current theories for why species are driven into decline and how these declines can be reversed. Set in a real-world context of economics, legislation and treaties, this book is very much a practical guide for conservation action. An eminently practical book discussing the theory and practice of conservation as it is in the real world rather than in an imaginary ideal scenario. A synthesis of the very important contribution Graeme Caughley made to the science of conservation biology.

This is a serious book about a serious subject, and reading it makes it clear how much we lost when we lost Graeme Caughley. This book is suitable for an advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate class in conservation where you are dealing with students who have at least some background in basic ecology and data analysis. Written in Caughley's iconoclastic style, with a strong Southern hemisphere emphasis in terms of examples and case studies, the book is a welcome relief from the conservation-lite type texts that litter the booksellers inventories. Caughley pulls no punches when he criticizes some of the more sweeping generalizations that have captured the popular imagination, and he expects his readers to be able to deal with math if they are going to mess around with survival curves, MVPs, or whatever. I found the writing to be clear, lucid, and to the point. Caughley gives an excellent review of theoretical aspects of conservation & then delvs into a series of case studies that illustrate points made in the first half of the book. Some of these will be familiar to most readers, others are more exotic, more intriguing, and each delivers useful lessons-of-practice to ponder over, argue about, and learn from. Even though this text is now 7 years old it is perhaps a mark of Caughley's foresight that it still has a very contemporary feel to it. Anne Gunn is to be commended for making sure that this book got out in a relatively intact form, and i would STRONGLY encourage professionals, teachers, and students to get it & keep it on your desk.

Caughley's book should be one of the most influential in this field, although it seems not to have achieved the prominence it deserves. Emphasis on the importance of empirical field data, in contrast with dependence on theoretical musings or preservationist preconceptions as the basis for decisions, is critical to achieving real progress in conservation, especially in tropical Asia where I have worked.
