BOOKS


Crooks, K. R., and M. Sanjayan, Eds. 2006. Connectivity Conservation. Conservation Biology Book Series, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK.

Connectivity Conservation, the fourteenth volume in the Cambridge Series Conservation Biology, provides a synthesis on the current status and literature of connectivity conservation research and implementation. This volume, edited by Kevin R. Crooks and M. Sanjayan, is “essential reading for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners working in conservation biology and natural resource management.”

Review of volume in Conservation Biology:

“Enhancing ecological connectivity in the context of protected-area networks and land- and waterscapes may be the greatest challenge and possibly the most important task facing conservationists today. This book is a milestone in conservation biology not only because of the importance of the subject matter but also because of the numerous excellent and authoritative summaries… This book provides, as described on its cover, a summary of the current status and literature on connectivity and will certainly become one of the classic texts in conservation biology. As with other books in this series, it should be required reading in all advanced courses in conservation biology.”
