The earth's biodiversity currently faces an extinction crisis that is unprecedented. Conservationists attempt to intervene in the extinction process either locally by protecting or restoring important species and habitats, or at national and international levels by influencing key policies and promoting debate. Reliable information is the foundation upon which these efforts are based, which places research at the heart of biodiversity conservation. The role of research in such conservation is diverse. It includes understanding why biodiversity is important, defining 'units' of biodiversity, priority-setting for species and sites, managing endangered and declining populations, understanding large-scale processes, making predictions about the future and interfacing with training, education, public awareness and policy initiatives. Using examples from a wide range of bird conservation work worldwide, researchers consider the principles underlying these issues, and illustrate how these principles have been applied to address actual conservation problems for students, practitioners and researchers in conservation biology.

Review:

' ... an excellent review of general principles and their widespread application in conserving bird biodiversity. As a result it should be of interest to many ornithologists and to conservationists beyond ornithology.' Ibis

'... a useful reference source, containing good review chapters.' TRENDS in Ecology and Evolution

'Nineteen authors contribute to 12 thought-provoking chapters. Subject coverage is wide but highly relevant to 21st century ornithology ... Each chapter is self contained and highly informative with numerous scientific references. The editors should be congratulated on the rarity of typographical errors and the consistency of structure across chapters. Each chapter terminates with a succinct conclusion and no chapter is overburdened with excessive detail ... I unreservedly recommend this book to university students, researchers in conservation biology, conservation practitioners and amateur ornithologists. It offers something for everyone.' Biological Conservation

Book Description:

In order to slow or stop the unprecedented loss of biodiversity, conservationists need reliable information on which to base conservation or restoration programmes. Using bird conservation to illustrate the basic scientific principles and applying this to real problems, this book is essential reading for students and researchers in conservation biology.
