Review:

"Drawing on their experience in teaching and instructive writing, the authors provide an accessible, well–organized and updated review suitable for undergraduate and graduate students in various biological and environmental sciences. The book will also serve as a reference work for researchers, and the expressive and lively prose, reflecting the dedication of the authors, will hopefully inspire not only future conservation biologists but anyone who is interested in the richness of life surrounding us." ( Écoscience, Volume 15, Issue 4, 2008)

"One could imagine a whole course being based on this book as it has so much to offer." (Journal of Biological Education)
