Description

This title offers theoretical and practical aspects of wildlife biology for restoring and conserving wild animals. Restoration plans must take into account the needs of current or desired wildlife species in project areas. "Restoring Wildlife" gives ecologists, restorationists, administrators, and other professionals involved with restoration projects the tools they need to understand essential ecological concepts, helping them to design restoration projects that can improve conditions for native species of wildlife. It also offers specific guidance and examples on how various projects have been designed and implemented. The book interweaves theoretical and practical aspects of wildlife biology that are directly applicable to the restoration and conservation of animals. It provides an understanding of the fundamentals of wildlife populations and wildlife-habitat relationships as it explores the concept components, spatial-temporal relationships, and role in land management. It applies these concepts in developing practical tools for professionals. "Restoring Wildlife" builds on the foundation of material presented in "Wildlife Restoration", published by Island Press in 2002, offering the basic information from that book along with much updated material in a reorganized and expanded format. "Restoring Wildlife" is the only single source that deals with wildlife and restoration, and is an important resource for practicing restorationists and biologists as well as undergraduate and graduate students in wildlife management, ecological restoration, environmental science, and related fields.
