Conservation Biology

Evolution in Action

Edited by Scott P. Carroll and Charles W. Fox

  • Provides a coherent academic and conceptual organization for an evolutionary approach to conservation biology, for which study materials are currently lacking and which this volume provides as a foundation for this rapidly growing subject.
  • Conservation biology is a rapidly expanding academic field of study; its main sub-disciplines, ecology and genetics, need bridging, and evolutionary conservation biology is their logical and emergent descendant.
  • The book provides novel, attractive, and exciting treatments of key topics and issues.
  • Contributing chapter authors are well-known, innovative leaders in the field
  • Suggestions for Further Reading direct students to other materials they should read to familiarize themselves with the subject
  • Cuts across many areas of environmental biology relevant to the work of applied biologists and other scientists
